Today temperatures of 35° Celsius are expected in Buenos Aires. According to the National Meteorological Service (SMN) the high temperatures in the cities of north and central Argentina will persist until at least Tuesday. Rainfalls are expected later on.
Silvia Gómez of the SMN explained that the mass of warm air is caused by the blockage of a high pressure system that provides winds from the north.
The northern wind causes ´high minimum and maximum temperatures, sometimes too high for this time of the year´ stated the meteorologist.
