    Heavy Rain and Strong Thunderstorms Argentina to Brazil

    A strengthening storm system emerging from the Andes on Sunday will cause thunderstorms to develop from northern Argentina into western Uruguay.

    These thunderstorms will be capable of producing torrential rainfall, damaging winds and hail.

    The heaviest rainfall through Sunday night will spread from northeastern Argentina into Uruguay and southeastern Brazil.


    On Monday, the heavy rain and storms will track from northern Uruguay into southeastern Brazil.

    Total rainfall of 25-75 mm (1-3 inches) from the storm system is expected from northeastern Argentina through much of Uruguay and far southeastern Brazil. Local amounts exceeding 100 mm (4 inches) are possible with the highest risk across western and northern Uruguay.

    The heaviest rainfall will avoid Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Montevideo, Uruguay, this time. However, both cities can still expect rain and even a gusty thunderstorm Sunday evening into Sunday night.
