NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmosphere) describes the cold wave that will reach the Southern Cone of America and Rio Grande do Sul as “extraordinary.”
MetSul Meteorology analysis says that the wave will bring polar temperature to atypical locations as far north as northern Bolivia and southern Peru as well as the Midwest of Brazil, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais.
According to NOAA, the flow of moisture from the sea will bring snow to coastal areas of Patagonia to southern Brazil, including the province of Buenos Aires and also in Uruguay.
The report adds that heavy snow will hit much of Patagonia, reaching Viedma and Bahia Blanca with accumulated 10-15 centimeters. Should snowing, says NOAA, mostly in the province of Buenos Aires. In the area of â€‹â€‹the River Plate and the southeastern Uruguay can be expected bumps of snow and snow mixed with rain (water nieve).
NOAA says the snow will extend to the upper parts of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina and Parana with accumulations up to 10 cm at the highest points. For 10 years MetSul accompanying bulletins NOAA to South America, coordinated by meteorologist Michael Davidson, and our team had never seen so incisive cold weather to our region, nor the cold waves more intense in recent years and that in some places will not be overcome by the current.
