Wednesday was a record hot day for Santiago de Chile - 94 degrees Fahrenheit – and the weatherman says higher than normal temperatures are not going away anytime soon.

Meteorologist Jorge Quintana from Chile’s Met Office said the El Niño driven heat-wave will last through the end of February, keeping temperatures 3-5 degrees higher than average.

Hotter temperatures and lower precipitation will affect Chile from Valparaiso in Region V to Valdivia in Region XIV.

The El Niño phenomenon increases the temperature in the Pacific in Chile’s central region, making it a good time to enjoy the normally frigid waters.
