Notes about Brazil:

Brazil's weather is very tropical,  Rains in Brazil are similar to those in Florida, pop-up summer storms. Keep in mind that in the Southern Hemisphere, spin is opposite to the Northern Hemisphere, low pressure systems spin clockwise and high pressure systems spin counter-clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.
