A strong cold front from Argentina is changing the weather in southern and southeastern Brazil starting this Thursday (28). The last weekend of the month should be cold, rainy, with gusts of wind, and frost is predicted in some parts of the southern region, reports Climatempo.
The cold front that arrived in the south of the country is accompanied by an intense polar air mass, which will affect the temperature of some regions of the country in the coming days.
Meteorologists predict frost and the possibility of snow in the mountain region of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina. Climatempo highlights that the cold peak will be on Saturday (30), but the feeling will ease from next week.
“The risk of storms increases in the state, and heavy rains may be accompanied by lightning and wind gusts,” warns Climatempo.

“Minimum temperatures expected for the southern region will be between 7°C and 8°C on Thursday night, with higher regions near zero over the next two days,” Inmet said.

Gusts of 40 to 55 km/h are expected, mainly west, south-central and east of São Paulo, which includes the coast, Grande SP, Vales do Paraiba and Ribeira, regions such as Sorocaba, Campinas, Itapetininga and Serra da Mantiqueira : .
However, the cold will intensify on Friday (29) and there may be rain in the afternoon.
