What would the weather patterns be if South America was flipped upside down? So basically Tierra del Fuego is where Venezuela is and vice versa? What would the climates be like?

Probably, in this scenario, continental climates can be formed in South America.

9s?? thats awful! it would probably be tropical!

yeah, i got confused cause b87 said i would tolerate BA weather now but i hate it now for being too hot, imagine then if it were....tropical!

Caracas, Cartagena and Bogota look nice in their new latitude.

Argentina would have an awful climate if SA were upside down, much less varied than now, much worse than now. So its better than SA stays how it is now.

How would the climate of Patagonia be?

I don't think south america is close enough to antartica for a continential climate.

I wonder how cold the likes of Quito and Bogota would be given their high elevation. Caracas is at a decent elevation too.
