Weather in Montevideo

Winter in Uruguay is fairly mild, but it can be windy and unstable, especially in the south. In winter, snowfalls are very rare, even though outbreaks of cold air, brought by the wind called Pampero, can occur throughout the country, with possible slight frosts at night, from May to September.
