Weather predictions, based on observation and mathematical modelshelp forecast the state of the atmosphere at a given time and location based on various relationships such as temperature, humidity, pressure, precipitation or wind.

Weather forecasts are exercises that have been carried out for hundreds of years, even before the Christian era, basically relying on the observation of cloud patterns, the wind, the time of year, although initially these they were unsuccessful.

It was not until the emergence of new technologies (such as computers) that mathematical models began to be put into operation that made it possible to achieve more precise predictions, becoming a fundamental factor for the transportation (by land, sea or air), agriculture, tourism, disaster prevention, public health and even military operationsbeyond deciding whether or not to carry an umbrella or what outfits to put on.

Uruguay It 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, presents 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 their 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 country, 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 Institute of Meteorology of Uruguay (Inumet) indicated that the maximum in Florida had reached 44 degrees, equaling the mark of January 20, 1943. On the contrary, the coldest was that of Mercedes on January 29. July 2007 with a -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 2100as well as an increase in rainfall.
