WEATHER

The Tropical Sea air mass (which acts throughout the year between Brazil and Africa) gained strength in this first fortnight in Minas Gerais and blocked the arrival of cold fronts.

The weather patterns show that the rains that should occur in most coffee growing regions until the end of March will only be in the form of isolated showers, typical of the time of year.

The week will be marked by high temperatures in all coffee regions.

Rain forecast for next week:

  • Sul de Minas region: between 10 and 20 mm;
  • Zona da Mata region: between 10 and 15 mm;
  • Cerrado region: between 10 and 15 mm;
  • Garça region: between 20 and 30 mm;
  • Alta Mogiana region: between 10 and 20 mm.
