The high-precision forecasting company reports that, for the next 10 days, there is a trend for no rain, except for the coast of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. but rain and winds Come back stronger in the next two months.
According to João Rodrigo de Castro, meteorologist and director of Ignisia, this storm scenario is common during spring, especially in El Niño years. But he points out that the weekend was marked by an unusual sequence of storms and thunderstorms.
“It’s not common for storms to form in an organized manner, like we saw last weekend, and it’s more common for them to occur individually,” he said.
According to Castro, important meteorological factors occurred and, as a result of the addition of heat, created a favorable environment for the occurrence of storms.
“Of these factors, perhaps the main reason was the action of the cyclone in the Atlantic Ocean. This cyclone was also responsible for three meter high waves in the sea and storm on the coast. All this could happen again in the months of November and December”, he said.
Although the weekend storms mainly affected São Paulo state, interior and the capital, the Ignicia Climate Intelligence System also recorded intense wind gusts in Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais and Mato Grosso do Sul.
By the beginning of Friday afternoon (3/11), the storms were concentrated over the area of Curitiba (PR), but they moved rapidly, forming a squall line in meteorology.
Castro explains, “These events are characterized by the alignment of several local storms that move in parallel, causing great damage to the places they pass through.”
The consequences of this storm wave are still being felt by the population of the São Paulo metropolitan area. About 200,000 people are still without power supply due to damage caused by strong winds this Tuesday (7).
