The type of weather that there is in a certain region is determined by different conditions among which are the altitude, latitude, orientation of the relief, distance to the sea and marine currents and gives guidelines to the so-called “Meteorological time” which in turn is based on other elements such as the temperature, pressure, wind, humidity and precipitation to describe the atmospheric conditions in a locality in a short term.
To catalog the climate, the system developed by Wladimir Köppen is generally used, although there is also the Thornthwaite system, the latter which also takes into account biological diversity and the effects of climate change on it. Others like Bergeron and Spacial Synoptic focus on the origin of the air masses that define the climate of a region.
Due to climate change, currently the planet is in a process of redistribution in which any change, no matter how small, in the average annual temperature causes changes in habitats and their conditions.
In this context, here we leave you the weather conditions for Encarnación.
The probability of precipitation for this Saturday in Encarnación it is 87% during the day and 7% throughout the night.
Meanwhile, the cloud cover will be 71% during the day and 10% during the night.
As to temperature a maximum of 17 degrees and a minimum of 13 degrees are forecast in this Paraguayan region. UV rays are expected to reach a level of up to 3.
While the wind gusts will reach 24 kilometers per hour in the day and 20 kilometers per hour at night.
How is the weather in Encarnacion?
Incarnation, one of the southern cities of Paraguay, is characterized by a humid subtropical climate where summers are hot and winters tend to be cool and humid. The annual average temperature is 20.5 degrees.
in incarnation, summer tends to be muggy, however, the banks of the river can be cool at night. In contrast, winter is not as extreme and gives the possibility of warm days, allowing the thermometer to drop to 10 degrees. Frosts are common in areas on the outskirts of the city.
As in almost the entire Paraguayan territory, something that is replicated in this region is its constant rainfall throughout the year either in the form of heavy rains, showers or light drizzles. Due to the presence of moisture Fog is also commonespecially during the fall and winter seasons.
Among the historical climatological data is that on July 18, 1975 snow fell for the first time in the city; earlier, on September 20, 1926, a storm that arose in the Paraná River destroyed a large part of the metropolis.
What is the climate in Paraguay
According to the Köppen classification, Paraguay is characterized by having at least three types of climate: humid subtropical in the southern part of the Oriental region; tropical savannah in the Western region and north of the Eastern region; as well as the warm semi-arid in the northwest of the Chaco.
In this South American country the average annual temperature is between 20 and 25 degrees. Although rainfall is common in almost the entire territory, the amount varies depending on the region, although summer is the season in which the most rainfall accumulation is recorded.
During the summer in Paraguay the thermometer can even rise above 40 degrees, being the historical record 45 degrees in 2009. On the contrary, in winter the temperature can drop to zero degrees, being -7 degrees the record in the year 2000.
In Paraguay the seasons are not completely defined and due to this and its proximity to the Tropic of Capricorn on average there is a difference of 10 degrees between the warmest month and the coldest month. Autumn and spring are particularly unstable.
due to climate change the ecoregions of Paraguay are currently vulnerable, since the country is considered one of the nations that most resorts to deforestation and soil erosion. Journalistic investigations indicate that the country lost 90% of its original forest cover in the last five decades, mainly due to livestock and agricultural activities. In 2009 the Chamber of Deputies rejected the “Zero Deforestation” project that sought the prohibition of this action.
