In a number of regions of Siberia, there will be a cold snap, “surprising” for the beginning of summer, Roman Vilfand, scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center, told TIme. The forecast applies to Omsk, Tyumen and Tomsk regions, Tuva, Khakassia and Krasnoyarsk.
“The temperature will decrease due to the entry – advection – of cold air masses from the north. They are genetically of polar origin and will quickly move to the south of Western Siberia, ”the expert explains. The second factor leading to cooling is the anticyclone effect. Last night in Komi and Khakassia they recorded minus 1 degrees, and in the Tomsk region the temperature had already dropped to minus 2 degrees. Vilfand noted that such indicators are a rare occurrence for Khakassia.
In Tyva, Krasnoyarsk and Khakassia, it will get colder to minus 2 degrees, on the night of June 10 at night in the Omsk and Tyumen regions the thermometer scale will drop to minus 5 degrees. Light frosts are expected next week in the Novosibirsk region and Kuzbass, where the temperature will also drop to minus 2 degrees.
Wilfand promised abnormal heat and frost in a number of regions
This weather anomaly is explained by the arrival of cold air of Arctic origin in the region, Elena Volosyuk, a leading specialist at the Phobos weather center, explained to TIme. According to her, there were also small frosts at night in the Irtysh region, in the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, as well as in the Urals. By the weekend, the temperature background will level off and the threat of night frosts will recede, Volosyuk said.
