The first heat wave of the spring will affect Santiago and inland areas of central Chile in the coming days.
A strong area of high pressure will build off the coast of Chile allowing unseasonable heat to build across central Chile from Tuesday through Thursday.
While some areas, including Santiago will see their highest temperatures since March the next several days, coastal areas will avoid any significant heat as flow off the ocean keeps temperatures in check.
High temperatures will range from 31-33 C (88-92 F) in and near Santiago through Thursday, likely peaking on Wednesday.
Slight cooling is expected around Santiago on Friday with a high temperature of 29 C (85 F).
A cold front will bring widespread cooler air to central Chile on Friday. A high temperature near 25 C (77 F) is forecast for Santiago.
