There was a fever throughout Patagonia and a swimming in Perito Moreno Glacier – 05/02/2019

Tierra del Fuego, Santa Cruz Mesh and summer midsummer Jujuy snow jacket. If we are talking about temperature, "El Reino del Revés" is headquartered in north-south Argentina. In Patagonia, in many cases there is a high temperature record that exceeds the center of the country. Also on Tuesday was snowing in the village of Jufa in Catua and Mina Pirquitas.

Meteorologists tell figures, but in a country, they do not know what others wear to go out.

The village of Perito Moreno in Northwest Santa Cruz (not to be confused with a glacier 500 kilometers away) reached 38.2 ° C on Monday. "We have far exceeded the 35-degree mark from 1961 to the present," he explains. Clarin Meteorologist Christian Garavaglia.

Two other Argentine cities with official measurement points of the National Weather Service (SMN) also made history. At Santa Cruz Airport in Santa Cruz, it reached 37 °, which is half the previous record. "At Rio Grande in Tierra Del Fuego, temperatures first rose above 30 ° C, reaching at least 30.8 ° C since 1961 when systematic measurements began.


However, despite the attentive, perplexed feelings of local residents and tourists, temperature in Ushua was not a record. The maximum Monday was 26.5 ° when the record was 28.5 °.

In Comodoro Rivadavia in Chubut, the temperature rose from 20 ° to 30 ° during the first hour, Tuesday, and stayed warmest in the morning. The National Weather Service maintained a special report on most of the Patagonia region, estimating a maximum temperature of 27 ° to 32 ° in the southern region, but between 32 ° and 32 ° in the rest of the region. 38 °, "can be overcome locally".

The World Meteorological Association has also repeated our "southern heat". In South America, we applauded the heat wave that broke the record on Monday because of the intense anti-chrome in the east carrying warm air throughout Patagonia with Chile.

And despite the odd feeling of heat instead of a cold, Garavaglia said, "It's clear that everything is often happening at the time of year and that Patagonia can maintain the highest temperatures in a year."

Does climate change relate to this "temperature"? "These special phenomena are not directly related to climate change," he said. "Long-term climate change will change the overall circulation of the region, so we'll have to continue investigating if this phenomenon is becoming more frequent."


Meteorology leads to an important high-pressure system associated with good weather conditions, such as occurs after a cold frontal system passes through this sequence. Because of its location, this high pressure system promotes northern wind through Cuyo and Patagonia. Patagonia has rapidly increased the temperature in the country sector and now raises the temperature in the central region.

And in the middle of summer Hujui's eyes? Jujuy, Mina Pirquitas located in the north-west of Jujuy City and the province of Catua on the border with the Salta south were covered by snow after the storm. This occurred as part of a storm that affected much of the Andean region.

"January's warmest month, the average temperature is 10 ° C. When it rains, snow can fall as the temperature rises. It rains hardly, almost 100 millimeters, in addition to cold air inflows and night temperature reductions The Cordillera and some of the foothills of the rainy season created a snowy dawn. The factors or causes were combined, "explains meteorologist Mauricio Saldivar.

"Not frequent, but happens every year at this time of year, the northwestern part of Argentina is one of the driest areas, with frequent storms in the summer, sometimes leaving the hail as it expands into the high mountains, or in this case with other types of snow- Remember, we are talking about a 4,000-meter-high place that prefers the occurrence of precipitation north of 7000 meters. Sometimes we close "Garavaglia" at this time of year.

Catua had temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius and Mina Pirquitas had a temperature sense of 3 degrees Celsius.

A total of 12 teachers teaching classes at the summer school in the Susques Department were unable to find a job due to inclement weather. Summer school classes run from September to June.
