Intense cold in Uruguay

“Very low temperatures, low thermal sensations and agrometeorological frosts, “but not a cold wave”.

Inumet alerted for low temperatures, but clarified that “does not set a cold wave”

The Uruguayan Institute of Meteorology (Inumet) warned that for Monday, August 19 and Tuesday, August 20 “very cold temperatures are expected” … “mainly south of the Río Negro”.

Inumet clarified that this situation “does not set a cold wave because it does not meet the minimum conditions established for this type of phenomenon: neither in number of days, nor in temperature”.

In the capital, minimums of 4 ° C and 3 ° c and maximums of 9 ° C and 10 ° C respectively for this Monday and Tuesday.

Today it will be cloudy, with covered periods, low thermal sensations and agrometeorological frosts.
Tomorrow will be covered to cloudy. (What are “agrometeorological frosts”?)

To the north of the country, the temperature for this Monday will range between 2 ° C and 13 ° C. Tomorrow between 0 ° C and 15 ° C. It will be cloudy and freezing. Mists and mists are also expected.

In the center of the territory, for today minimums of 0 ° C and maximums of 10 ° C are expected.

For tomorrow, minimum of -1 ° C and maximum of 11 ° C.

To the southwest, for both days, minimums of 0 ° C are announced. The maximum for this Monday will be 11 ° C and tomorrow 12 ° C. Cloudy, with covered periods.

To the east, meanwhile, they are forecast minimum of -1 ° C and maximum of 11 ° C for Monday and Tuesday. It will be cloudy and overcast with low probability of low rainfall.

  1. What are “agrometeorological frosts”?
    My understanding is that because cold air can pool in low-lying areas, even though ambient temperatures may be above 0°C the coldest air can settle into those areas where it’s lower and drop below the critical freezing point which can be devastating for certain crops. It may also refer to the fact that some crops are susceptible to cold damage at temperatures above 0°C.

  2. From: https://climatism.blog/2019/02/22/japan-acknowledges-the-global-warming-pause-sanctions-35-new-coal-power-plants-added-to-the-100-currently-operational/

    THE Japanese government has identified and acknowledged the current ~20 year-long global warming “pause” or “hiatus”. The (inconvenient) atmospheric phenomenon that has been the subject of much research and debate in peer-reviewed scientific journals for many years now.

    BASED on data from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), the government has justified the expansion of its global-leading, ultra-supercritical HELE coal-fired power plant technology both domestically and abroad.

    PRIME MINISTER Abe has sanctioned the addition of 35 new coal power plants to the 100 currently operational.

    Data from the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) clearly indicates that there has been no significant deviation in the monthly average temperature between 1998 and 2018. The period between is of special importance to the Japanese government.

    No country would want to reduce its emissions when its monthly average temperatures are actually decreasing. It is for this reason that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe refuses to stay true to the hasty anti-coal commitments he made at the UN’s international climate summits.

    Instead of discouraging the use of coal, Japan is increasing its dependency on coal. Abe has sanctioned the addition of 35 new coal power plants to the 100 currently operational. The country is also encouraging its Asian neighbors and other developing countries to purchase its clean coal technology.

    “The Japanese response to the anti-coal establishment, besides being bold, accurately reflects climate reality. Japan understands the need to prioritize the domestic energy needs over faulty, pseudo-scientific forecasts of climate doom.”

  3. In looking further into it Robert it would appear that not only is the article from February this year but that this technology has been around longer than I thought. Had not heard of it myself which is remiss of me, also the usual suspects had put a hold on it in the US.

  4. be handy to know the days required to BE called cold then?
    cos in Aus 3 warmish days is enough for the warmists to scream heatwave

  5. David Hartley, what has a coal plant in Arkansas got to do with intense cold in Uruguay? I think you must have posted your reply to the wrong article.

  6. The use of the term agrometeorological frost probably has the meaning of ‘ground frost’ in English. Temperatures quoted in weather forecasts and measured at most weather stations are air temperatures measured in a screen at about 4 feet height. However, temperatures can be very different on the ground. At night, especially on clear, calm night the ground temperature can be several degrees colder than at 4 feet above the ground. Some weather stations also measure these ground temperatures – usually at 2 inches or so, either on grass or concrete or earth. This temperature is important to farmers because it is at the level of many crops. So, you can have a ground frost that damages your crop when the air temperature – at 4 feet is well above freezing.

  7. yes it is cold here in Uruguay and maybe a bit colder than usual. However it is winter time here in Uruguay and thus cold days are not that unusual. Last year the winter was relatively mild and June this year was much warmer than usual. In fact, milder winters would fit into the ice age scenario as I understand it, which would be longer and colder winters in the northern hemisphere and milder winters in the southern hemisphere.
