#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In April-September, the temperature in most of the territory of Russia will be near or above the norm. And in the south of Siberia and the Far East, early forest fires are possible. Rossiyskaya Gazeta writes about this with reference to the Hydrometeorological Center.
In Taimyr, weather forecasters predict April will be colder than in 2021. But precipitation in the second spring month may be more than a year earlier, May is also expected to be quite wet.
As for the summer, it is expected to be dry in the north of the Krasnoyarsk region. But last year, for example, forecasters missed a similar forecast for June. And in May, in Norilsk, the snow usually just begins to melt, although there have been rare years when the snow cover melted at the end of April.
Earlier, the Hydrometeorological Center promised 40-degree frosts in Taimyr in March, and this forecast came true. According to the World Meteorological Organization, short-term weather forecasts (for three days) with an accuracy of 85-90 percent and long-range (for a period of ten days to three months) with a skill of 60-65 percent are considered successful.
