Seasons In Brazil

"Cruzeiro is freezing as of late. Not really freezing, but I think its because it used to be so hot, and now the slight drop in temperature is making me way cold, especially at night. The other night we decided, for some strange reason, to sleep with the window ajar. Well, about 4am I decided I was cold and the only reason I didn't get up to shut it was out of pure and simple laziness, I'm not gonna lie. So its chilly in Cruzeiro."

Although 90 per cent of Brazil is within the tropics, more than 60 per cent of the population lives in areas where altitude, sea winds, or polar fronts moderate the temperature. There are five climatic regions in Brazil: equatorial, tropical, semi-arid, highland tropical and subtropical. Plateau cities such as Sao Paulo, Brasilia and Belo Horizonte have milder climates averaging 19°C (66°F). Rio de Janeiro, Recife, Natal and Salvador on the coast have warmer climates balanced by the Trade Winds. Rio, for example, has an average temperature of around 26°C (80°F) which will climb into the high 30s-low 40s (over 100°F) during the summer months. In the southern Brazilian cities of Porto Alegre and Curitiba, the subtropical climate is similar to parts of the US and Europe, with frosts occurring in the winter months (July-August) when temperatures can fall below freezing.

Seasons in Brazil are the reverse of those in the US:

Spring: 22 September to 21 December
Summer: 22 December to 21 March
Autumn: 22 March to 21 June
Winter: 22 June to 21 September


  • In some parts of Rio Grande do Sul (where Porto Alegre is located) it can actually snow. I lived in the city of Canela for a while and while I was there it snowed twice. Of course, I say snow, but it was actually the briefest of flurries compared to what we get here. However, it was a really big deal to them. It also got very, very cold there because of the humidity and the fact that is just as cold inside the houses as it is outside.
