Brazil summer temps coldest in 99 years

9 Jan 09 – Excerpts – “Ive been hearing about the dry weather in the south of Brazil.   Although I knew the reports were accurate, it was still hard to believe ...   

“So I decided to get a first-hand weather report from Eroni Paniz, our Cropwatcher from Brazils southernmost state Rio Grande do Sul.   

His report: 

“It was a dry winter! In the spring, we had a strong rain, and after that, in October and November, we got nearly nothing.

“… Its really strange, as it rains torrentially in the middle of the state but on the extremities, nothing.  I guess that, between the two, I would pick drought over floods at least with droughts you dont lose everything you own. But, with floods, everything can get washed away. 

“I think that a good portion of the grain crop will decrease in size, mainly the corn and edible beans that were hit hard. According to what Ive heard, we should suffer a loss of around 25 percent.  The livestock sector is taking it in the face!

“… The forecast isnt good, with just a few, sparse rains not big enough to get a whole farm wet. Weve had cold weather for this time of year its been 99 years since we have had such cold temperatures during the period of the year, and Im not sure how long its been since weve had such a bad drought. 

Its really strange; when it should be cold, its hot enough to fry an egg. And vice versa. Theres no explaining it."
