“Indian summer” in Russia may begin in the second half of September, said Yevgeny Tishkovets, chief specialist of the Phobos weather center, on Sputnik radio.
“There is hope after the 17th or 18th for Indian summer, but the period there will not be very long. I still do not see a forecast for a good Indian summer, which happened when September and even October were warm. No, this year, at the end of September, there will again be a cold snap, ”Tishkovets said.
According to him, on September 11, 12 and 13, when the temperature in the Moscow region and other regions of Central Russia exceeded 20 degrees, it cannot be considered an “Indian summer”. “There is a definition that Indian summer is a stable period of five to seven days. At this time, the sun should be shining, there should be no precipitation or cloudiness. There should also be a quiet wind and a moderately comfortable temperature, ”explained the forecaster.
