Severe floods in northern parts fo South America continue and Brazil, Ecuador and Colombia report hard times.

About heavy storms in the region we have informed in previous articles, too /https://mkweather.com/floods-in-brazil-and-ecuador-continue-the-next-cities-under-water/; https://mkweather.com/floods-and-severe-storms-bother-parts-of-brazil//.

Season of rain is gradually shifting from southern regions such as Peru, southern Brazil or Bolivia northward /https://mkweather.com/peru-ecuador-bolivia-and-brazil-with-dedly-floods-forecasts-are-bad//.

In Brazil, the last severe floods appeared in Nova Iguacu/ Sao Luis.

In Ecuador, the worst situation is in Loja.

Colombia reports deadly floods from Versalles region.

At all, extreme precipitation amounts, 500 – 1000 mm are forecasted until Easter 2021 for large region of Amazon, including northern half of Brazil, northern and eastern Peru, continental Ecuador, southern Colombia, southernmost Venezuela and parts of Guyana region.

Rounds of autumn severe storms should appear in southeastern parts of continent, too, including southern Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay of Paraguay.

Until Summer 2021, rainy season will shift even more northward and many southern regions probably already in late Spring 2021 should be calmer, that around Easter period.

During late summer and early autumn, Amazon hit almost every year season of drought and wildfires, because ITCZ (Intertropical Convergence Zone) is shifted above Colombia, Venezuela, Suriname, Guyana, Central America and southern Caribbean.

In Autumn 2021 (and Summer 2021/2022), El nino is already forecasted, what should change many weather patterns across the continent.
