Cold front drops temperatures
The passage of a large and intense cold front through the country leaves many areas of instability over most areas of the Southeast, Northeast, North and part of the Midwest of the country.
The phenomenon that advanced over Brazil is now between Bahia, Tocantins, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. Heavy clouds grow in these states, but there is still a large amount of cloud cover and rain from this cold front spread over other areas of the Northeast, the North region, part of the Center-West and Southeast of Brazil.
Areas of instability associated with this cold front still cause rain in the coastal area between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The intense mass of cold air of polar origin that accompanies the cold front causes exceptionally low temperatures for November in the South, Southeast and Center-West states, in Acre, in Rondônia and in the South of Amazonas.
Cold records for November were observed in areas of the South, Midwest, North of the country and also over Argentina. Cold air persists over the country until the end of this week.
