Extreme Day-Night Temperature Contrast in Uruguay,


Alfon99

Recommended Posts

Hi, I live in Uruguay, South America and just bought a weather station, which has been working since may and It recorded very big temperature contrast between day and night. Once it recorded -3 celsius at night and in the daytime 20 celsius. The other day It was not so big, -1 celsius at night and 16 celsius in the daytime. And this morning it was 0 celsius and it went up to 17 celsius in the afternoon. What do you think?

That is quite a difference, although it's not that rare to have a range of temperatures like that. It happens in the UK too, we had something similar a few weeks ago with around 0ºC overnight and then 20ºC+ during the day. It's usually a sign of nice sunny weather (i.e. clear skies) so enjoy it while it lasts :good:

    I've experienced some pretty huge ranges in Australia in highlands (800m asl) with pretty dry environment. In late winter mins of -10 to maxs of 16-17 degrees. Similarly in summer same region have had close to 30 degree temperature range from 5-10 degrees overnight to mid 30s.

     

    I think its not that uncommon in elevated and relatively arid environments.
