From west to east, longitudes stretch from 7 degrees to 20 degrees (Brazil's Atlantic Coast). Snowfall has taken place in states of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. Click on image to learn how the Solar Minimum will affect society, economy and food prices. However, Itatiaia is located near the Mantiqueira Mountains. (Google translate: I THINK PESSSOAS know little Brazil in the world, Brazil is not only Rio and Amazon, I live in the south of Brazil in a city of 100,000 inhabitants. I wonder why the main stream media isn’t reporting on this? I read that the Antarctic gained some crazy “manhattans worth of snow in a day or so..:-) lol I think whats more impressive to me was the fact that it was EXTREME HOT one day and Extremely cold 10 days later. Itatiaia is located very close to the city of Rio de Janeiro, a city known for its beaches and tropical climate. Don’t mean to spoil, but, Bom Jardim da Serra means: “Good garden of the mountain”. “Even though the mainstream media tries to ignore the obvious cooling in the southern hemisphere over the past several years, Accuweather has picked up on an amazing turn of events from record heat to severe storm to snow and record cold in Brazil,” says Koffenberger. It depends on the location within Brazil. Although a relatively rare occurrence, snow does fall in the south, where the weather is colder and the topography is more mountainous. Posted on September 26, 2012 by Anthony Watts at WUWT. By Marques Hayes on November 22 2017 in World Facts. In fact, in some parts of Brazil, snow is an annual occurrence. Vacaria has recorded the heaviest snowfall in Brazil. Huge hailstones punched holes in roofs, high winds (estimated near 100 mph) knocked down brick walls and radio antennas. Nearby Caxias do Sul, also located in Parana, receives an annual snow fall. The states of Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná and Santa Catarina make up the Southern region of the country. This is where Brazil's high plains are located. Examples of the coldest cities in Brazil are Bom Jesus, Bom Jardim da Serra, Palmas and Urupema. Elevation and its location outside of the tropics plays a major role. unreported as always. Many areas in southern Brazil are at relatively high altitudes. Interesting idea, because of increasing albedo and the direct effect on air circulation patterns, affecting cloudiness, etc., but without the “backup” of the Sun it won’t happen. Snow has occurred in five Brazilian states. glad we arent copping sth americas weather though, funny- we are lower, you would think we would? To state that it is snowing in Brazil without also pointing out in the headline that there was a preceding heatwave could be regarded as somewhat biased and could leave “drive-by” readers with a limited view of the situation. Things get lost in translation. The states of Parana, Rio Grande do Sul, and Santa Catarina are the southernmost states within Brazil. * * * Good news!A publisher in Italy has translated Not by Fire but by Ice into Italian. Near the city of Camaquã, nearly a foot (300 mm) of rain was estimated, collapsing a bridge. Brazil is a country known for places such as Rio De Janeiro, the Amazon Rainforest, and beaches. Various tropical climates make up the majority of climates in Brazil. Nah. However, it can snow in Brazil. eBook Edition I have read the artcle and links to Sante Catarina paper but have not found any prove of RECORD. With various land forms, Brazil is home to various climates. Two metres of snow fell on Vacaria on August 7, 1897. See:- On the Uruguay coast, streets filled with sand and sea foam as winds gusted to 107 mph (172 km/hr). The other occasion during which heavy snow fell in Brazil was on June 15th 1985 in Pico das Agulhas Negras. It is a yearly occurrence in the three southernmost states of Brazil, particularly in places of higher elevations. Antarctica gains 2,400 Manhattans worth of ice overnight, http://beforeitsnews.com/weather/2012/09/it-snowed-today-in-brazil-2437202.html, http://wattsupwiththat.com/2012/01/08/solar-cycle-24-length-and-its-consequences/. This is the most snow ever recorded for any populated place in Brazil. Snow has taken place here. http://www.worldweatherpost.com/2012/09/26/extreme-storm-takes-brazil-from-108-to-30-and-snow/#.UGR5f1F7SSo, http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-blogs/weathermatrix/brazil-goes-from-108-f-to-snow-in-three-days/79545, Thanks to Greg Mantle and Kevin Koffenberger for these links, “(I’m) a loyal reader,” says Koffenberger. It is a pity that previous solar grand minimums were given the name “mini ice-ages”. Urupema is the city in Brazil with the lowest average annual temperatures, it is common for the residents to experience temperatures of 14°F/-10°C in the winter! By the time this grand minimum is over mankind will have a better understanding of them and perhaps we will come to know them by more appropriate terminology. We have snow in the mountains in winter, normally twice a season, yet it normally melts after three days max. Often these transitions seem to have been accompanied by massive storms caused by the wind shear between the two extremes. OTOH, the magnetic fields of Earth and the Sun are anything but normal now and I think this is a very important ‘evidence’. The sub – tropical zones in the south fall just outside the tropical climate zone, this combined with a relatively high – altitude allow it to snow in Brazil. Snow is hppening time from time there, last time in 2000. Specifically, inland areas in the higher elevations are where those snowfalls have taken place, not in those states' coastal areas. 52 degrees and raining. ACHO QUE PESSSOAS CONHEÇEM POUCO O brasil no mundo,o Brasil não só Amazonia e Rio, moro no sul do brasil numa cidade de 100.000 hab. started pouring in. On this occasion more than 2 meters of snow was recorded. This year we had snow sitting there for over two months. Its sheer geographical size means that it encompasses various climates including equatorial (Amapá and Pará), semi – arid (Rio Grande do Norte, Paraíba) and high – altitude tropical (São Paulo, Minas Gerais). After the new climate is defined the strong oscillations of the weather (as it’s happening now) stop and the climate everywhere becomes colder. In the “Year Without a Summer” (1816) in New England, there was 2 or 3 days of high 90s even in New England just two weeks after the snow. It’s crazy that we have to find out about stuff like this only here. is already happening since at least 1997, http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/analysis_monitoring/ensostuff/ensoyears.shtml. At least its not as cold as Brazil! NASA GISS caught changing past data again – violates Data Quality Act São Joaquim is the city with the most snow days in Brazil, snow is even a source of income for the area with an average influx of 13, 000 tourists per year coming to enjoy the cold! e não incomun, a neve tenho vários filmes com nevascas. The next time you travel to the south of Brazil, be there at the right time and you could be swapping sandals and sunglasses for hats and gloves! And as Bill Bryson in a “Short History of Nearly Everything” said all it takes to set off an ice age is for the northern hemisphere to have an early onset to winter whilst the southern hemisphere has a slow start to summer and vice versa.
