translated from Spanish: After the spring weather, does the Storm of Santa Rosa arrive?

The week began in the city of Buenos Aires with a forecast of 14oC minimum and 21oC maximum, according to the National Weather Service. The spring weather was also felt in much of the country, waiting for the traditional “storm of Santa Rosa”, a temporary rain classic that surprises at this time of year. In the metropolitan area and the Federal Capital, the phenomenon could occur towards the end of the week. However, there are regions of the country where the phenomenon would have been anticipated. It happened in Chaco, where heavy rainfall and wind gusts caused flooding in Resistencia, the capital of that province. In the case of the central area, for example in Cordoba, meteorologists indicated that the storm would develop between August 29 and September 4 with the usual characteristics it usually brings. For this Tuesday, in and around Buenos Aires, the SMN forecasts cloudy skies, a minimum temperature of 15oC and 22oC maximum and haze during the early morning. On Wednesday it will also continue the mostly cloudy sky, north-sector winds with gusts of up to 50 kilometers per hour in the morning and a temperature of 16oC and 27oC maximum. On Thursday, meanwhile, rains are announced throughout the day, with winds from the south and 19 oC and 22oC minimum and maximum respectively. Finally, on Friday the weather will return to values more according to the time, with 9o minimum and 14o maximum. The legend of the “Storm of Santa Rosa”
In 1615, ships of Dutch privateers wanted to attack the city of Lima, one of the richest and most important points of the then Viceroyalty of the Rio de La Plata.Before the desperation of the population of today’s Peruvian capital, Santa Rosa called everyone to pray to the Church. Legend has it that, at that time, a strong storm rose in the area, which prevented the ships from attacking the port El Callao. Even the myth speaks that the captain of the pirates died aboard the ship. The Santa Rosa Storm is a phenomenon that usually occurs a few days before or a few days after August 30. Santa Rosa de Lima died on August 24, 1617 and was elected Patron of Argentine Independence, among many other recognitions in the Americas. In this note:
