    Eladio Solano, an official of the National Meteorological Institute (IMN) said that warm temperatures in much of the Metropolitan Area and along with the Pacific breeze created large clouds that favor the formation of lightning and heavy downpours.

    Solano indicates that although there were no heavy rains in the area of the volcano, these clouds, called cumulus nimbus, can commonly form hail.

    The meteorologist said the lowest temperature recorded this morning at the volcano was 3 degrees Celsius.
