BuenosAiresheatwave

After much of the country saw snow just over a month ago, yesterday Buenos Aires basked in a winter heat wave.

Tuesday saw Buenos Aires city and province areas hit by 34.4 degree temperatures and winter sunshine, breaking the historical records for highest temperature in September since 1944.

The National Weather Forecasting Service (SMN) announced the high temperatures affecting the North, the Centre and the Cuyo provinces are expected to last until Wednesday.

The SMN meteorologist Silvia Gomez said: “The unusually high temperatures are expected until tomorrow (Wednesday) and may reach the maximum of 40 degrees.”

Gomez added the hot weather will be followed by “intensive winds in the North of the region, and relatively low humidity in the Central Western region.”

Lower temperatures are expected on Thursday with cloudy skies and temperatures of around 15 degrees at the highest.
