What is a subtropical cyclone?

Unlike tropical cyclones, an approaching subtropical cyclone gains strength through a combination of atmospheric and oceanic factors.

This event is not linked to a cold front, but is a consequence of atmospheric agitation after the passage of one.

The warm waters of the Atlantic are a fuel for its intensification, bringing with it a series of adverse meteorological phenomena.

What are the impacts of the subtropical cyclone in Brazil?

The National Institute of Meteorology (INMET) did not hesitate to issue a "danger" alert for the Southeast region.

The institute anticipates rainfall that could exceed 100 millimeters per day and winds that reach up to 100 km/h.

The seriousness of the warning extends to the possibilities of landslides, falling trees, flooding and floods, putting the safety of the population and the infrastructure of cities at risk.

Regional preparations and alerts

The focus is on preparations to mitigate the effects of the cyclone. São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, in particular, must prepare for disruption.

The expected volume of rain requires a careful look at areas at risk of landslides and flooding.

Civil Defense has already signaled a state of alert, especially in areas known for their vulnerability.

Forecasts for the south and other regions

The south of Brazil, especially Rio Grande do Sul and parts of Santa Catarina, is also preparing to face intense rains and storms.

The alert extends until Saturday (17), with an improvement expected only on Sunday (18). However, the cyclone is a reminder of the unpredictable nature of the weather, affecting not just the Southeast but potentially other areas with heavy rain and wind.

How to protect yourself from a cyclone?

Namely, it is essential to pay attention to weather updates and follow the guidance of local authorities.

Simple measures, such as avoiding areas known for flooding and not taking shelter under trees during storms, can make a big difference in personal and community safety.

Furthermore, following the official INMET and Civil Defense communication channels is crucial to receive real-time warnings and specific instructions for your region.

Prevention starts with adequate information and preparation.
