Mexico City, Mexico.– The term DANA refers to the “Isolated Depressions at High Levels”.
This meteorological phenomenon is characteristic of the Mediterranean region and is associated with the formation of low pressure areas at high levels of the atmosphere.
These depressions can lead to adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain and storms and even snowfall.
What is DANA?
It is a meteorological phenomenon known to move slowly and stay in one place for several days.
In some situations, it can cause heavy rain leading to flooding and other weather-related problems.
“To understand its formation, you have to look at the polar jet. It is a very intense wind current at high levels of the troposphere that circulates from west to east and that separates the cold polar air (located to the north of this current) from the warm tropical air (to the south of the current).” AEMET spokesperson Rubén del Campo told National Geographic
When will DANA arrive in Mexico?
According to specialists, this phenomenon could occur in Mexico between November 21 and 23.
