Lima’s winter weather set to improve soon


SENAMHI, Peru’s National Meteorology and Hydrology Service, reports today that Lima should start seeing improved weather conditions this week. Meteorologists say that residents of the capital should begin to experience more sunshine and less rainy days as the week progresses.

SEHAMHI specialist Teresa García told Andina news agency that better weather will be felt all over the city, literally brightening Limeños’ days in a number of districts. “This time, in addition to the eastern districts of Lima, the districts that are closer to the sea will also have some nice days, which is unusual,” García said. Affected areas will include San Miguel, Chorrillos, Barranco, Miraflores, San Isidro, and parts of Callao, as well as districts that are located further inland.

As reported by Andina, temperatures in western districts such as Miraflores could reach 18.5 degrees celsius (about 65 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day; eastern districts could experience temperatures as high as 21 degrees celsius, around 69 degrees Fahrenheit. García confirmed that general trend for temperatures in the coming days is upward.

García went on to say “The frequency of rain showers should decrease, and even if there’s not intense sun, there will at least be some sunshine in the western districts.” However, the SENAMHI specialist added that cold temperatures may return by the end of the week and that residents of Lima should not abandon preventive measures to avoid respiratory infections.

In early August, SENAMHI reported that Lima is currently experiencing the most severe winter weather in 30 years due to abnormally low ocean temperatures.
