Alis Varela de la Rosa, Yesenia Arias Mulet, Ailyn Justiz Águila, Miguel Ángel Martínez Hernández


This work described the main characteristics of the 2019-2020 winter season. For the analysis of this winter season we used the information received from the cold fronts summaries of each of the provincial meteorological centers, which were affected by those systems, as well as the chronological data on the cold fronts of the Forecast Center archive of the Institute of Meteorology. The winter season 2019-2020 began on November 9, 2019 with the arrival in Cuba of the first cold front and extended until May 1st, 2020, the day that affected the cold front number 18, the last of this winter season. This winter season was classified as normal in relation to climate value (19 FF per season), González (1999). The analysis of the sea surface temperature in the equatorial Pacific and its incidence on the behavior of the 2019-2020 winter season is also discussed here and it highlights the wind and temperature fields associated with the cold fronts that affected the Cuban territory.
