Rain season is currently shifted mainly above Amazon and parts of Brazil southward from Amazon and until February – March 2022 a situation should be bad, yet.
Then, ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) will return back to Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, and Suriname and flood risk in many parts of Brazil will weaken (however strong local T-storms will be still possible).
Meanwhile, southern parts of Brazil reported in the last days, together with Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay, extreme heatwave, with record temperatures up to +41°C (will be updated in the next article).
