Low atmospheric pressure systems organize the humidity of the Amazon and cause heavy and frequent rain over the states of Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo and Goiás this week.
The accumulation exceeds 200mm in a good part of Espírito Santo and Zona da Mata of Minas Gerais. In addition to the weekend precipitation, municipalities in Espírito Santo will be able to receive in January this month the biggest accumulated since the end of 2013. The heavy rain, in addition to paralyzing field activities, increases the risk of erosion. On the other hand, precipitation will be sufficient to increase the level of the reservoirs and guarantee complementary irrigation for the whole of 2020.
