the wave of cold that reaches the Rio de Janeiro has not given a truce. in the National Park of Itatiaia in Sul Fluminense, the station of the National Institute of Meteorology (Inmet) recorded, this Saturday (21), the lowest temperature of the year in the country so far: -7.6°C detected between 5 am and 6 am.

The Inmet station is located at an altitude of about 2,700 meters. During the week, there had already been a rare phenomenon known as icicle: when the fog freezes, which causes an appearance similar to ice in nature and makes the public believe that it has snowed or frosted in the locality, due to the vegetation aspect.

Until then, the lowest temperature recorded in the country, according to Inmet, was on Monday (17), in the same place: -4.7°C. Meteorologist at the institute, Heráclio Alves explains that very low temperatures are recurrent in the region.

“It’s an area where they are common, because there is a combination of cold air mass and altitude. This station is located in a very high area, which is not a parameter even for the altitude of Itatiaia. So, it is an exception, in which there are usually always very cold temperatures”, says the expert.

The park has another station, which is unofficial. In the equipment, managed by the park itself and located in a lower and humid area, the temperature recorded was even lower: -9.2°C, between 4:44 am and 4:54 am.

The director of the conservation unit, Colonel Luiz Aragão, said that, after that, there were no more measurements. “The station went off the air. It is likely that the temperature was even lower.”

Also this Saturday (21), it froze in Brejo da Lapa, another location in the park, located at an altitude of 2,100 meters.

The night and dawn were cold, even for those who were far from Itatiaia, which is about 173 kilometers from the capital. In the city of Rio de Janeiro, Alerta Rio, the municipal meteorological service, detected a temperature of 12.2°C. It took place in Alto da Boa Vista, North Zone, and was recorded around 5:15 am.
