Over the next few months South America is forecast to transition away from widespread exceptional water deficits. However, from November through January pockets of extreme to exceptional deficits are forecast in western Amazonas and central Brazil, the Cordillera Real Mountains of Bolivia, and scattered down through the nations along the Pacific Ocean, particularly Chile. Surpluses are forecast for: central and eastern Colombia, northern Bolivia, the Amazon Basin from Manaus to Amapá, eastern Paraguay into Argentina, and La Pampa, Argentina. From February to April water deficits will continue to diminish, with the exception of Chile where areas of significant deficit will persist.
