Temperatures soared above 32 C (90 F) for seventh day straight in the Argentina capital of Buenos Aires, before reaching only 31 C (88 F) on Thursday and Friday. Saturday climbed to 90 degrees yet again.
The extended period of heat has forced more energy usage, putting a strain on Argentina's power grid which resulted in numerous blackouts.
Thousands of people in the capital and its suburbs are without power or water due to the power outages, and some people have taken to the streets to protest, according to the Associated Press.
Unfortunately, the unseasonable heat is going to continue for at least another week. The heat is expected to build from Sunday into early next week.
High temperatures near 38 C (100 F) on Sunday will continue through Tuesday along with plenty of sunshine each day.
This prolonged stretch of heat will likely continue to put strain on the power grid across the region which could result in prolonged blackouts during the hottest times of the day.
If the blackouts persist for any long duration, health risks will become a threat due to unseasonable heat.
