Temps Thursday will rise into the mid 80's and crescendo in the mid 80's over the weekend. Temps will be a few degrees warmer as to move east to San Jose del Cabo and even a little warmer and breezier in Los Barriles on the Sea of Cortez.
Mexico Springs forward to "horario de verano" or what Gringos call Daylight Savings time on Sunday April 5, which is also Easter Sunday.
Another reminder that next week is Semana Santa. (Week of Saints) This is a huge vacation week for Mexicans, much like the 4th of July is for Americans. If you have business to attend to, it is best completed by today, Thursday, as staffing levels at many businesses and government offices will be reduced beginning Friday. Some offices including Transito (licenses and plates) will close Wednesday. Schools are closed beginning this Friday through next week, so watch for excited children on vacation as you drive about town. .
