Looks like Winter started Early in Chile.

Another 5-15mm of rain through the city today. Will dry up tomorrow with a warming trend before another cold front arrives next Thursday. The models are suggesting some good rainfall associated with a deep low pressure system to start off May so hopefully that eventuates.

A very Autumnal feeling driving to work yesterday. Fresh snow on the hills, frost in sheltered spots, and a chilling wind. Good colour with some of the deciduous trees as well.

nice pics.

Valle Nevado is at 2860 m though so snowfall shouldn't shock them. They do have dry summers though (like Santiago) so it is a little early to see so much.

I can see the northern end of the Southern Alps from here now. A sure sign of the cold season. The clearer air now has increased visibility, so I can see the peaks about 120km/80 miles away.

That cold slamming Chile seems to be the same it's over Argentina and southern Brazil right now. We haven't got snow but some highlands have seen frost and flurries instead.

Here in São Paulo, this cold spell is going to reach its appex overnight. I'm hoping to get a low in the 40's since we have 50ºF already...

The cold spell its over, at least in Buenos Aires. Its been over for 3 days now. It lasted until saturday. Sunday started sunny and shinny and temps have been going up since then. Sunday, monday and tuesday were sunny and temps were wonderful. Around 16 celsius at daytime, maybe 12 at night. Today (tuesday) was even warmer, around 18 at daytime, and 15 celsius night, at 12 at night! It seems that the weather has return to its normal temperature parameters.

I enjoyed the cold spell, it lasted around a week and it was coooold. But i got sick because of it: you know how i love opening windows, sleeping without heaters, etcetera? well, that gets me sick really often, and i had a cold for the last 3 or 4 days. Im better now, but it was awful, had to sleep with a heater and dranked all kinds of medicines and teas, lol.

Now im fine, and the weather is being just awesome, completely sunny, cool/coldish, just how i love it to be. May ROCKS!

I wouldnt mind colder nights than 15c though, but for now im enjoying it, specially cause i have to avoid the cold a bit, so i dont get sick again.

Definitely seem to have shifted into more of a winter type synoptic pattern here (as would be expected) with the presence of rain bearing lows becoming increasingly common, rainfall in May is around the 120mm mark so hopefully we at least meet the average which is a rare feat in the last few decades.

BOM is forecasting showers for at least the next week, and GFS is currently predicting around 50-75mm of rain in that period...the model runs have been a bit inconsistent though, so fingers crossed.

Very warm overnight minimum of 19.8C this morning, not far off the May record of 20.8C.
