SOUTH AMERICA Long Range Weather Outlook
Updated: June 25, 2019 at 2:30pm (in Santiago, Chile)

After some heavy snowfalls from the current and expected low pressure system this Wednesday and Thursday (June 26 - 27)...
Screen Shot 2019-06-25 at 12.21.52 Screen Shot 2019-06-25 at 12.21.39
Screen Shot 2019-06-25 at 12.25.31
This weekend, 28 to 30 June, we expect a couple of weaker low pressure systems to move through, with snow showers for all resort areas north to Santiago, heavier just south of Santiago including Cerro Bayo Resort, as a couple of low pressure systems move through.

Screen Shot 2019-06-25 at 11.51.03

On Monday we expect lingering snow as a low pressure system is exiting the area. Totals will be light to moderate.

Most of next week (July 02 through July 07) Tuesday through Friday (snow may linger into Tuesday), we expect a large and strong high pressure ridge to dominate the weather for the Andes Mountains, with sun and some clouds mixed, milder temperatures and no snow expected north of Patagonia (most of the larger more popular resorts in the Santiago, Chile region will be dry), mostly dry and sunny for the Andes Mountains. Meanwhile Patagonia will see regular, frequent snowfalls through this period.

Around July 08 through July 10, we see a transition back into unsettled and snowy weather for the Andes Mountains and places like Valle Nevado, Portillo, etc. This should last through mid-July.    Meteorologo: Christopher Manly
