The Uruguayan Institute of Meteorology (Inumet) issued this Tuesday a Orange alert for 12 departments of Uruguay, for strong storms and heavy rain. There is also a yellow warning in force and the impact of both, which is in the southwestern part of the country, will in principle apply until the time 22:30.
Storms and rains entered – some punctually strong and severe – from the southwest, the agency reported. In addition, he pointed out that intense rains and gusts of wind associated with storms were reported in Mercedes (Soriano). It was a humid descending current, with winds of more than 100 kilometers in the hour.
The Inumet forecasts storms, some punctually strong. Heavy rains may be recorded in short periods, hail fall, intense electrical activity and very strong gusts of wind, he added. It responds to an atmospheric disturbance associated with a moist and unstable air mass.
“The situation will continue to be monitored and any changes will be reported,” the agency said.
