Caption: Storm clouds. The clouds are accompanying a dry, cold, south-westerly wind known as Pampero that occurs over the prairies (Pampas) of Argentina and Uruguay. While the term Pampero is loosely applied to any strong south-westerly wind, it really applies to a rain squall or thunderstorm arising from the passage of a cold front. The first phase is called the Pampero Humedo (humid pampero). The second phase is the Pampero Seco (dry pampero), which usually turns into a dust storm or Pampero Sucio (dirty pampero). The Pampero can occur at any time of year, but is strongest between October and January.
