Outline Highlights Recent Evolution and Current Conditions NCEP/GFS Model Forecasts Climatology Highlights During the last 7 days, below-average precipitation was observed over much of northwestern and southern Brazil, as well as portions of northern Argentina, Uruguay, eastern Peru and Bolivia. Above-average

precipitation was observed over portions of eastern Brazil, southern Paraguay, northern Peru and eastern Ecuador. For Days 1-7 (03 09 Feb 2020), below-average precipitation is predicted over much of northwestern and the extreme southern Brazil, as well as portions of northern Bolivia southern Peru and southern Colombia. Above-average precipitation is predicted for large portions of eastern Brazil and northern Argentina. Rainfall Total & Anomaly Patterns: Last 7 Days

Total Anomaly During the last 7 days, below-average precipitation was observed over much of northwestern and southern Brazil, as well as portions of northern Argentina, Uruguay, eastern Peru and Bolivia.

Last 30 Days Total Anomaly During the last 30 days, below-average precipitation was observed over much of Brazil, northern Argentina, Uruguay, southern Chile, Bolivia and eastern Peru. Above-average precipitation was observed over portions of southern Paraguay and eastern Brazil. Recent Evolution: Rainfall

Last 90 Days BP: Brazilian Plateau BP 90-day rainfall deficits are present over the Amazon Basin, the Brazilian Plateau and the extreme southern

Brazil. Tropical Pacific and Atlantic SST Anomalies SSTs are above-average across the western and central tropical Pacific (For details concerning El Nio La Nia, go to the link below.)

Atmospheric Circulation Recent 7 days A Upper panels: During the recent 7-day period, anomalous anticyclonic flow (center noted by red A) was observed over northwestern Brazil. Lower panels: Anomalous sinking motion was

observed over northern Brazil and central Argentina, and anomalous rising motion was observed over eastern Brazil and Bolivia. Rising motion (negative omega, yellow/red shading), usually associated with wetter- thannormal conditions. Sinking motion (positive omega, blue shading), usually associated with drier-than-normal conditions.

925-hPa Wind &Temperature Recent 30 Days Recent 7 Days During the recent 7-day period, above-average temperature was seen over much of northern and the extreme southern Brazil. Low-level (~600 m above sea level) wind and temperature anomalies based on the NCEP Climate Data Assimilation Systems (CDAS) analysis. The patterns of anomalous temperature and wind at 925-hPa are usually similar to surface observations.

Note: Areas with surface pressure below 925-hPa are masked out. NCEP/GFS Model Forecasts Bias-Corrected Precipitation Forecasts from 03 Feb 2020 Days 1-7 Total Note: Bias correction based on last 30-day forecast error. Anomaly

NCEP/GFS MODEL FORECASTS For Days 1-7 (03 09 Feb 2020), below-average precipitation is predicted over much of northwestern and the extreme southern Brazil, as well as portions of northern Bolivia southern Peru and southern Colombia. Above-average precipitation is predicted for large portions of eastern Brazil and northern Argentina. For Days 8 -14 (10 16 Feb 2020), below-average precipitation is predicted for much of Brazil, northern Uruguay, Bolivia and Ecuador. Above-average precipitation is predicted for small portions of southern

Brazil and southern Peru. Climatology Rainy Season Dates ONSET DEMISE Precipitation Climatology
