Climate information is increasingly relevant to society (Infobae/Jovani Pérez)
The type of climate that exists in a certain region is determined by different factors, among which are the altitude, latitude, orientation of the relief, distance from the sea and marine currents, and gives guidelines for the so-called “weather weather” which in turn is supported by in other elements such as temperature, pressure, wind, humidity and precipitation to delineate the atmospheric conditions in a locality in a short term.
To classify 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, such as Bergeron and Spacial Synoptic, focus on the origin of the air masses that define the climate of a region.
Due to climate change, the planet is currently undergoing a redistribution process in which any modification, however minimal, in the average annual temperature causes changes in habitats and their conditions.
In this context, here we leave you the weather for Montevideo.
The weather for this Saturday in Montevideo will reach 27 degrees, while the minimum temperature will be 19 degrees. The forecast for ultraviolet ray levels is 4.
Regarding rain, the probability of precipitation for said city will be 98%, with a cloudiness of 92%, during the day; and 3%, with a cloudiness of 33%, throughout the night.
Meanwhile, the gusts of wind will reach 30 kilometers per hour during the day and 32 kilometers per hour at night.
Between the airs of Montevideo
Montevideo has a humid subtropical climate with an average annual temperature of 16.7 degrees, being relatively mild during most of the year.
Due to its location, in a medium latitude, the seasons are well defined, mainly winter (from June to August) and summer (December to February), although there is usually wind practically all year round as it is a coastal city.
In winter there is usually precipitation and fog, as well as a drop in temperature to zero degrees and, although snowfall is non-existent, a hot winter with temperatures that sometimes rise to 20 degrees is not. Spring and fall are mild.
On the other hand, during the summer heat waves are common with highs around 35 degrees and lows of 20 degrees. It is worth mentioning that the population should pay special attention to ultraviolet rays, since they are usually more intense than in the rest of the planet due to the geographical location of the country.
As for the temperature records, the historical minimum has been -5.6 degrees, while the maximum has marked 42.8 degrees. Only once has a snowfall been recorded: it was on July 13, 1930 during the first match in the history of the Soccer World Cup.
What kind of climate is there in Uruguay

Uruguay is a country with a temperate-humid climate, with hot summers and cool winters that also, due to its geographical location and its proximity to the ocean, has a double rainy season between spring-summer and autumn.
The country has an average temperature of 17 degrees a year, however, there is a very marked difference in its territory: the northwestern region where Artigas, Salto and Rivera are located is warmer with an average of 18 degrees; while the southeast, where Montevideo, Maldonado, Rocha and Lavalleja are, are cooler, with an average of 16 degrees.
Due to the strong winds that occur in the territory, the summers are less extreme and the winter is cooler, which also causes cold waves that especially affect the north and south of the center. Only in one month up to 25 frosts can be registered.
Just on January 15, 2022, the country registered a new record for the highest temperature in its history, when the Uruguayan Institute of Meteorology (Inumet) indicated that the maximum in Florida had reached 44 degrees, equaling the mark of 20 January 1943. On the contrary, the coldest was that of Mercedes on July 29, 2007 with -7.6 degrees.
Scientists point out that due to the effects of climate change, Uruguay could have an increase in temperature of up to three degrees in the year 2100, as well as an increase in rainfall.
