Heat and cold records broken in just 5 days in Argentina

ARGENTINA broke records for heat and cold within a short window of just five days this week, with temperatures plummeting a jaw-dropping 30 degrees Celsius as a heatwave gave way to historic snowfalls.

A cold front from Patagonia caused temperatures in Buenos Aires to drop from a high of 38.1 C last Sunday to only 7.9C (46.2F) on Thursday – a record low for the month of February since 1951, the National Meteorological Service reported.
