Much warmer temperatures than usual. And little rains in different provinces. These are two of the main phenomena to be expected during the next three months in Argentina, according to the latest extended forecast released by the National Meteorological Service (SMN).
Specifically, the report warns about the probability that spring will give way to a phase known as La Niña, which would carry these characteristics.
First, it could complicate the situation in watersheds suffering from droughts. Second, the meteorological agency has reported that for the months between August and October 2021 there is a greater probability that the average temperature is, on average, warmer in much of the country.
The provinces with the highest probabilities in this category are San Luis, Córdoba, San Juan, Mendoza, Tierra del Fuego and all of eastern Patagonia. On the other hand, for La Pampa, Santa Fe, Entre Ríos, Santiago del Estero, Chaco, Formosa, west of Salta, west of Buenos Aires and western Patagonia, a quarter from normal to superior is expected.
For Tucumán and the rest of the north of the country, the agency recorded a temperature range that could be higher than usual, with a greater probability of extreme minimum temperatures, as well as maximum temperatures. Finally, for our region it was indicated that the rainfall for the next 90 days will be normal to lower than normal.
