South America Long Range Forecast by SnowForecast
SOUTH AMERICA Long Range Weather Outlook
Meteorologist Christopher Manly from SnowForecast.com sends us this report.
After some heavy snowfalls from the current and expected low pressure system this past Wednesday and Thursday (June 26 – 27)
This weekend ending 30 June, we expect a couple of weaker low pressure systems to move through, with snow showers for all resort areas north to Santiago, heavier just south of Santiago including Cerro Bayo Resort in Argentina, as a couple of low pressure systems move through.
On Monday we expect lingering snow as a low-pressure system is exiting the area. Totals will be light to moderate.
Most of next week (July 02 through July 07) Tuesday through Friday (snow may linger into Tuesday), we expect a large and strong high pressure ridge to dominate the weather for the Andes Mountains, with sun and some clouds mixed, milder temperatures and no snow expected north of Patagonia (most of the larger more popular resorts in the Santiago, Chile region will be dry), mostly dry and sunny for the Andes Mountains. Meanwhile Patagonia will see regular, frequent snowfalls through this period.
Around July 08 through July 10, we see a transition back into unsettled and snowy weather for the Andes Mountains and places like Valle Nevado, Portillo, etc. This should last through mid-July. Meteorologo: Christopher Manly

SnowForecast.com covers the snow forecast of all over the ski world- helping you predict when to send a sick note so you can go off skiing.
You can read our post questioning ourselves if the snow in the Northern Hemisphere Resorts correlates with that one on the Southern Hemisphere ones. Also read about our Focus on South America Resorts. And check the news of Portillo for this season starting now. Check how so much snow in North America is causing summer operations to be delayed. Chapelco, in the Argentine province of Neuquen in Patagonia, also opened this weekend. Cerro Bayo also had been doing some preparations for this ski season.
With so much snow this past year in parts of the USA and Europe, you might wonder what is the real risk of avalanches. You can read our interview to Coco Torres, former Head of Operations for Valle de Las Leñas on how that resort takes care of their valley being a very high-risk prone avalanche area.
