Through Wednesday, more heavy rain will fall over north-central Argentina and Uruguay. This rain will fall in areas already dealing with flooding from recent rainfall.
Buenos Aires, Argentina, has seen some heavy rainfall over the past few weeks, and nearly 17 inches (430 mm) of rain has fallen since the beginning of the year. This is more than 350 percent of normal rainfall over this time of year.
Across the border in Montevideo, Uruguay, nearly 20 inches (500 mm) of rain has fallen since the beginning of January. This is more than 500 percent of normal rainfall for the period.
The heavy rain has been welcome for some, especially north and west of Buenos Aires, as farmers in the area saw less-than-average rainfall last year. In fact, during the same time last year, less than 2 inches (50 mm) of rain fell across much of the croplands.
More locally heavy rainfall is expected over the next several days as a front remains over the area and with the hot, humid air of inland Argentina, storms develop to the west and push toward the coastline. Some of these storms have brought significant flooding to parts of Argentina and, according to the Buenos Aires Herald, one person died and over 2,000 were evacuated on Friday due to the heavy rain in the greater Buenos Aires area.
Some of these storms also brought strong winds and severe weather to the region. Winds on Saturday around Buenos Aires gusted to over 50 mph.
These storms will stick around for the next few days, before the region finally begins to dry out on Thursday. Cool and dry weather is expected across the region from Thursday into Saturday.
