Polar weather hits sub-tropical climate of Northern Argentina and expected to last until end of week


The North of Argentina usually escapes the cold temperatures of the South and remains relatively sub-tropical year round, with relatively short and mild winters. This year is very different.

After Buenos Aires experienced its first heavy snowfall for nearly 100 years on Monday, it seems that the whole of Argentina is shivering and trying to keep warm.

The Northern region of Misiones (famous for growing Yerba Mate and the location of Iguazu Falls) has been experiencing very low temperatures. For the last few days, a cold wind chill factor combined with sunny days has caused severe frosts overnight. With minimum temperatures expected from 0 to -4 degrees C below zero and maximum temperatures of between 8 and 14 degrees C.

Forecasters are predicting that the intense cold start to winter shall decrease in its intensity towards the end of this month.
