In South America, a warm, muggy air mass will continue to allow strong to severe thunderstorms to develop over the border between Peru and Brazil. The strongest thunderstorms will focus over Acre on Friday. Showers and thunderstorms will also be possible across Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia and central Brazil. To the south, a large area of low pressure will shift eastward away from the coasts of Uruguay and Brazil. Thunderstorms will pop up over southeastern Brazil as a result of this system. Further to the south, a trough of low pressure will trigger heavy precipitation and gusty winds across Patagonia.
