Will it rain in São Paulo today?
After the strong storm that fell in São Paulo on the afternoon of this Wednesday, 8th, which caused at least one death, the expectation is that new showers of rain hit the city between mid-afternoon and late at night. On the previous day, until 6:15 pm, according to the Fire Department, there were 13 landslides, 66 fallen trees and 61 floods. Wind gusts exceeded 70 kilometers per hour. The victim found dead was a woman, who was inside a car that was submerged because of the flood in Moema, in the south zone of the capital.
According to the Emergency Management Center (CGE), Thursday began with varying cloud cover and thermometers hovering around 19.1°C overnight. During the day the sun appears between clouds. With temperatures rising, the maximum can reach 32°C.
“The propagation of areas of instability associated with the approach of a frontal system through the ocean should cause rain in the form of showers, mainly between mid-afternoon and during the night. There are conditions for points of moderate to strong intensity with lightning and gusts of wind, which together with the soil, which is already soaked, increases the potential for the formation of floods and landslides in Greater São Paulo”, said the CGE.
In the coming days, there are still forecasts of areas of instability over the State of São Paulo.
Friday, the 10th, should present cloudy and rainy weather, including precipitation records during the night. During the day, the weather improves and the thermometers vary between 18ºC and 28ºC. There is a chance of rain throughout the day.
