Norte this weekend?

Headed down to Cancun this weekend, looking at the forecasts and it looks like a Norte may be blowing through Sunday - Monday. Any ideas on how long these usually last and what to do in the mean time?

We are going on friday too. It seems to be unanimous, not looking great sunday-monday. Thankfully there will be plenty of Don Julio and great food.

Wow, I guess steve doesn't know everything. http://ggweather.com/winds.html

(it is also not a north-easter. It is either a nor'easter or a northeaster)

This was the weather pattern when we were there around thanksgiving. It was like that 6 out of the 7 days. Not exactly what you want when you are on the short side of the 7 that faces north.

Norte is what the locals call a cold front coming in from the north during the winter season. Usually involves very windy weather, rain, and a lot of clouds for a few days.

Our Mexican caretaker calls a storm a "Norte" when a front moves in from due North bringing 'cold' (cooler to us) winds and usually rain, up to three days of it.

Looking at this forecast,

the temps aren't low enough to mean a Norte.
