Northern Brazil


The changing of the seasons will bring beneficial rainfall to northern Brazil, a region that has experienced severe drought over the past several years.

Meanwhile, summer heat will scorch parts of Chile and Argentina as temperatures soar into the 40s C (100s F).

Typical summer warmth is forecast to build over much of South America this season with the hottest conditions focusing on parts of Argentina.

"There will be stretches with highs in the lower 30s C to 40 C (90s to low 100s F) in central Argentina, " Nicholls said.

Stifling summer heat will occasionally be interrupted by the passage of cold fronts, bringing a temporary drop in temperature as well as the opportunity for showers and thunderstorms.

Some of the thunderstorms may turn severe with damaging winds and downpours that could lead to localized flooding.

Showers and thunderstorms are also in the forecast this summer across Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay, with many areas in these countries getting near-normal rainfall.

These showers and thunderstorms will also boost humidity levels, causing AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures to climb shortly after a storm passes through.

Dry, hot summer to worsen drought in Chile

Similar to last summer, the upcoming season is expected to bring predominantly hot and dry weather to Chile.

According to Nicholls, areas in central Chile will have several stretches of time when highs will exceed the upper 30s C (80s F), including in capital city of Santiago.

While hot and dry weather is typical of Chile during the summertime, it may be problematic this year.

Chile is emerging from a wet season that yielded little rainfall, so additional heat and dryness may worsen drought conditions.

"Overall, most of Chile had 50 percent or less of normal rainfall during their rainy season from May through October, " Nicholls said.

Summer is the typical dry time of year for much of Chile, so little drought relief is expected.

If any rain does fall this season, Nicholls believes that it is most likely to occur later in the summer after the start of 2017.

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
