Temperatures in October will be above average across most of the country. This is what the bulletin released by the National Institute of Meteorology (Inmet) predicts.
In Mato Grosso, Tocantins, Pará, Maranhão, Piauí and western Bahia, temperatures are expected to exceed 29ºC.
In the south of Mato Grosso do Sul and part of the South region, thermometers should register temperatures close to or slightly below 1ºC of the normal average for the month.
“The occurrence of consecutive days with rain in these areas could reduce temperatures, reaching values below 20ºC”, says a note from Inmet.
As for rainfall, the forecast for the North and Northeast regions will be below the historical average, with volumes of less than 70 millimeters.
In the Central-West and Southeast, rain should return gradually, mainly in the states of Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo and Minas Gerais.
The South region will remain likely to receive a large amount of rain, with Rio Grande do Sul being one of the most affected. Inmet predicts volumes above 250 millimeters.
One of the effects of El Niño is the increase in rainfall in the south of the country. This is because there is a large circulation of winds, which ends up interfering with the movement of other winds, preventing the advance of cold fronts across Brazilian territory. As a result, the fronts remain parked for longer in the South region, says Inmet.
