Weather in Argentina – you should pay attention

Traveling through Argentina with a rental car, so it is also important to pay attention to the weather. Because not only the distances in Argentina are extreme, but also the weather changes. Particular attention should be paid to rapidly growing “Tormentas” with storm-like rainfall within a short time and the associated street floods. Therefore you should bring yourself and the rental car to safety in good time. As if out of nowhere, there can be heavy hailstorms with fist-sized pieces of hail, especially in midsummer. After all, these hailstones can smash an entire car. That’s why you should always look for a protective shelter in good time before hailstorms begin.

Before planning a day trip, you should look at the weather forecast. In principle, the national weather service, the Servicio Nacional Meteorógico, is responsible, which issues weather forecasts for the entire country.
