Ciudad Cuauhtémoc is a city located in the west-central part of the Mexican state of Chihuahua. It serves as the seat of the municipality of Cuauhtémoc.Cuauhtémoc lies 103 km (64 mi) west of the state capital of Chihuahua. As of 2010, the city of Cuauhtémoc had a population of 154,639 up from 98,725 as of 2005.The population in 1953 was just under 3,000, composed almost entirely of Mexicans with the exception of foreign-born people who have gone there as traders. The town of Cuauhtémoc developed after the coming of the Mennonites in the 1920s although very few Mennonites lived in town, for it was the Mennonite shopping center. A railroad, a highway, and a bus line connected Cuauhtémoc with Chihuahua.ClimateCiudad Cuauhtémoc has a semi-arid climate (Köppen climate classification BSk) moderated by its altitude. Winters are cool and sunny with a January average of 7.5C and temperatures regularly fall below freezing. Occasionally, the city can see 1 or 2 snowfalls per year. Summers are warm with June being the warmest month with an average of 21.7C. Most of the precipitation falls during this time of the year, during the monsoon season. The highest recorded temperature was 46.0C on May 19, 1996 and the lowest recorded temperature was -16C on December 30, 1975.TransportationIn the early 1950s there were no improved roads leading from the hinterland into Cuauhtémoc. A four-lane highway, completed in 1986, connected the city with the city of Chihuahua, the state capital. Another highway connected Cuauhtémoc with Col. Anahuac, where a large pulp mill is located. The Gran Vision highway, which is to be continued to the west coast through the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains, joins the city to the western hinterlands, and another highway leaving the city passes through the Mennonite colonies to the north (Manitoba Colony).
