Instability will continue over central and northern Argentina in the next few hours, with new pulses of heavy to heavy rain expected in the region. Meteorological forecasts from various models indicate risks of heavy and torrential rain in the provinces of Entre Rios, Santa Fe Córdoba, La Rioja and San Juan, with accumulations that may be between 50 and 100 mm, with occasional higher volumes. In addition, there is a risk of scattered thunderstorms, windstorms and hail. Part of this instability will affect departments in central and northern Uruguay. Over the weekend, the passage of a cold front associated with a low pressure center will lead to a new wave of storms and rains that could be massive.
