Regarding the forecasts for the next few days, Karamanian said: “Today (Monday), although it is a cold morning, the condition is that the temperature will rise on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and I would say that until on Thursday we will have a little changüí, in terms of temperature.” He added that the minimum temperature will remain above 3 degrees, and the maximum temperature may exceed 7 or 8 degrees.
Regarding the unusual flooding of the Río Grande, the meteorologist explained that it was caused by a combination of many factors, including winds from the East and South. “The Hydrography Service has it somewhat tabulated, there are tides that they know will exceed normal values and they have programmed them. the water can be strong,” concluded Gabriel Karamanian.
