                         in extratropical versus tropical South American latitudes is 
                         studied. A double wave train propagates through the southern 
                         hemisphere following the polar and subtropical jets. If, in the 
                         previous day, both trains coincide in phase over the southeast 
                         Pacific (southwest Atlantic) Oceans, it will contribute to 
                         generate generalized frosts (strong frosts) at extratropical 
                         (tropical) latitudes, not affecting tropical (extratropical) 
                         latitudes given the wave train zonal propagation. The vertically 
                         averaged eddy kinetic energy composites show three maxima
