A system of low atmospheric pressure causes rain showers over the center of Brazil.
According to the National Institute of Meteorology (INMET), the accumulation of this morning reached 60mm in Linhares-ES and Marilândia-ES. As of tomorrow, this low pressure system gives rise to a subtropical cyclone, which will be called KURUMÍ (boy in Guarani Tupi). The phenomenon causes heavy and comprehensive rain over Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais and Goiás in the coming days.
The accumulated ranges between 100mm and 200mm, and most of the precipitation will happen until Saturday in Zona da Mata and Espírito Santo. In addition to the rain, strong gusts of wind are forecast, above 60km / h, in the two producing areas. Heavy rain paralyzes field activities and increases the chance of erosion. On the other hand, the reservoirs will have enough water for complementary irrigation by the end of 2020.
