A cold front advances at sea and passes along the coast of São Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, but without having the strength to cause major changes in the weather in the Southeast Region.
Low atmospheric pressure over Paraguay and the persistence of hot and humid winds coming from the North of Brazil stimulate the growth of more heavy clouds over the South Region, which remains on alert for heavy and voluminous rain.
A mass of hot air remains over Brazil, maintaining temperatures well above normal over the Southeast, Central-West, part of the Northeast and North of Brazil.
Hot and dry air predominates in the Northeast and humid and hot air predominates over the North.
