Forecast for the Next Five Days:
Cold front advances through the coffee areas taking rain to Paraná, São Paulo and Minas Gerais. According to the National Institute of Meteorology (INMET), this morning, it rained just over 10mm in Japira-PR, Marília-SP and Nova Fátima-PR, 35mm in Joaquim Távora-PR, 25mm in Casa Branca-SP and 20mm in Itapira-SP and Machado-MG. Rain is still forecasted this Friday with accumulated up to 15mm between São Paulo and Minas Gerais (especially Baixa Mogiana and south of Minas Gerais). From Saturday, the highlight will be the cold. A 1032-mbar high-pressure area centered between northern Uruguay and western Rio Grande do Sul generates minimum temperatures between 0 ° C and 2 ° C in northern Paraná and Alta Paulista on Saturday with potential for frost in producing areas . The next day, the center of the high atmospheric pressure with 1031 millibars on the south and east of Rio Grande do Sul increases the cold in Mogiana and in Minas Gerais. There is a minimum temperature forecasted between 0 ° C and 3 ° C with potential for frost in Mogiana, southern Minas Gerais and Cerrado. This is the biggest cold wave in six years. But she draws more attention to the great extent than to the severity of the cold. Even in more extreme simulations, for example, there are no negative readings for the coffee areas, which could lead to more extensive and severe damage. In addition, rainfall over producing areas dampens the soil and can also minimize the damage associated with intense cold.
