Argentina Dry Today, Rains Return Sunday, But

april22_post_wv The boundary that triggered heavy rains over Argentina this past week has pushed into southern Brazil, where it will remain today and Saturday with heavy showers over Rio Grande do Sul and Parana, while still remaining quite dry over northern growing regions of Brazil (top image is Water Vapor with very nice drying in the mid and upper atmosphere pushing moisture north into Brazil). With Argentina not expected to see much rain the next two days, harvest will progress, especially over southern growing soybean areas where less rain was received and dried out earlier. The northeastern growing belt around Sante Fe will also dry out, but likely still a bit too wet in fields with damage assessment continuing. After another dry day to start Saturday, rains will return to the northeastern Argentine soybean growing belt Saturday Night and Sunday. The southern growing areas will remain dry however due to a sharp line where rainfall quickly drops off. It’s not likely rains last more than just a day or two as the cool front driving them will get a nice push back northward into Brazil, finally bringing rainfall to some much needed recently hot and dry 2nd crop areas. Essentially, Argentina will be dry the next few days, get another quick dose of heavy rains across northern fields Sunday, and then dry back out.

    There will be some scatted showers over Argentina Monday, but mostly dry the rest of the week. Brazil will have a bit better chances for showers next week.
