Air temperature


In September in the European part of Russia abnormally cold weather was predominant. The average decade values of temperature in some areas were 1.5 - 2.0ºC below the norm. And, as a result, September was colder than usually in the Central, Southern and Volga Federal Districts. The situation was quite different in the Urals and east of the Ural Mountains. Two first decades were there exceptionally warm. In Evenkiya and Turukhansk Territory, in Taimyr and in Chukotka, in the Kuzbass and in the Baikal Lakeside, on Sakhalin and in Kamchatka daily air temperatures reached extremes quite a number of times. The average decade temperatures exceeded the normal by 4 - 8ºC. Only in the third decade steady cold weather established in Yakutia and Kolyma. The mean air temperature was here 2 - 3ºC lower than norm during the third decade. Nevertheless, freezing did not spoil the general impression of warm weather in the east of the country.
