In the central part of European Russia, the temperature will be 10 degrees above normal until next Thursday. Then the thermometer will drop, but it will still be 5-7 degrees warmer than usual.
In Moscow on Monday, January 25, a positive temperature of 1-3 degrees will be established. At times light precipitation, fog in places. Fogs, sometimes snow and rain are expected in the Center of Russia, temperatures from -1 to +4.
As Lyudmila Parshina, head of the laboratory of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, explained to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, fogs arise due to the fact that warm air passing over the snow cools down, forming condensation. Winter fogs, unlike summer ones, can persist until noon. This not only impairs visibility on the roads, but also affects well-being, as the amount of oxygen in the air decreases due to moisture.
Forecasters predict that the weather will not change until the middle of the week. The reason for the thaw is a cyclone that is moving from Belarus to Karelia.
While the March heat came to Central Russia in January, the inhabitants of Western Siberia and Yakutia, on the contrary, will experience an abnormal cold, the deviation from the norm will be up to 18 degrees.
Meanwhile, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, is confident that Russians will have to get used to the abnormality of weather phenomena, since these are natural consequences of global warming.
