Heat is also coming to Culiacan, Mexico. Highs in the 90s will start Wednesday and continue through next Tuesday with a peak high of 94 on Sunday. Get ready for an onslaught of supply.

Three days of rain and cold temperatures in Veracruz, Mexico, starting today will most likely affect the Persian lime production. There is a 100 percent chance of rain with highs in the 60s.
