 This article is about Friday's weather forecasts. The current forecast from the state Civil Protection meteorological site says (translated): Partly cloudy, scattered showers with squalls accompanied by isolated lightning, hot and muggy, easterly and southeasterly winds from 15 to 25 kph., with occasional stronger gusts.
      HERE is the weather report from Wunderground & the Isla Mujeres weather station, in English.     HERE  is the weather report from the National Weather Service for Isla Mujeres, in Spanish. 
 The port was open for all nautical activities on Friday, and there were a good number of tourists arriving, generating economic benefits. The fleet of 240 boats engaged in whale shark tours were able to work, and the nautical signaling systems were all functioning. There have been no incidents so far this year.

Isla Mujeres University in 2019 
Universidad de Isla Mujeres en 2019[+] Ver masFull article at this link 
     The university financed by Catholics in Isla Mujeres should start operations in January 2019,offering five specialties: hotel industry, tourism, languages, gastronomy, and computers, said Father Raúl Sánchez Alonso. 
      Those interested in being part of the study plan will have to take an intensive course in English as the chosen language to communicate between teachers and students. They will also take a leadership course.This will be prior to starting their coursework. This is expected to benefit ~200 young people, according to the preliminary estimates from people close to the project.
   There are people from the United States who currently reside in Isla Mujeres who are offering support, who want to contribute something so that young people have the opportunity to prepare themselves, considering that of every 10 high school graduates, half would not have the opportunity to obtain a higher level of education due to lack of money.In his pastoral work with youths, Father Raúl Sánchez detected this problem three years ago and began to put together this plan. 
   The five buildings should be completed at the end of August, and the second one is currently under construction. They will be equipped in the fall, to open in January, offering five specialties.
