At the end of the month and in early February 2022, the next extreme heatwave is building in the region and it´s very probable, that hot Summer 2021/2022 and very warm Autumn 2022 will continue in similar regimes /https://mkweather.com/summer-2021-2022-forecast-for-south-america-stormy-north-hot-and-dry-south-cold-and-dry-pacific-coast/; https://mkweather.com/autumn-2022-forecast-for-south-america//.
While the southern half of South America is experiencing anomalously strong heatwaves during La Nina, the northern half suffers extreme floods.
In the next Mkweather article we will shift into Sao Paulo, Brazil, Quito, Ecuador, Machu Picchu, Peru, and Tolima, Colombia – all cities were hit by severe floods in the last period.
El Nino is still forecasted only from Autumn 2022 /https://mkweather.com/el-nino-is-coming-autumn-2022-a-big-changes-in-circulation-patterns-worldwide//, with changes in temperature and precipitation regimes across the continent.
