The ONS also reduced the expectation of precipitation in the Northeast, pointing to volumes at 66% of the historical average in November, compared to 76% in the previous week’s forecast.

For the South, the projection was also reduced to 58% of the historical average in November, compared to 64% in the previous week’s report.

With regard to the energy load, the ONS started to see an increase of 1.1% in Brazil in November, versus an increase of 1.4% in last week’s estimate.
