Climate & Geography

Uruguay is mostly made up of plains and small hill ranges split by rivers and basins. The weather is gentle and humid with warm summers with tropical air flowing from Brazil and in the winter polar air can make it cool to cold; it rarely snows. Weather changes in Uruguay can be abrupt due to no mountains to block any winds.
