For the high rainy season of the second semester (October 6 - December 5), under a moderate to strong warming condition in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, scarce rains are expected (between 50% and 80% compared to the traditional ones for the season ) or normal amounts of rain (between 80% and 120% with respect to these climatological values). In a similar way, showing values between low and normal, the number of days with precipitation will behave.
For these same two seasons, under the aforementioned external conditions in each case, values between normal and above the respective climatological averages of air temperature, temperature oscillation, solar radiation and evaporation are expected.
Relative air humidity is expected to show normal to low values compared to multi-year mean values in each of these seasons.
