The inflow of very warm air masses at the western periphery of the cyclone contributes to the abnormal temperature rise in the regions of the Central Federal District (CFD) of Russia. Thus, Monday will become the hottest day of the week, as reported on August 1 by Roman Vilfand, scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of the Russian Federation.
Nevertheless, he pointed out that starting from Tuesday, the circulation will change, and the Central Federal District will find itself in the cold part of the anticyclone. According to forecasts, the temperature background on this day will be 24 degrees above zero and will remain until Friday.
“In the Central Federal District, the situation is such that on Monday the temperature will be 4-5 degrees above normal. This is due to the fact that very warm air masses come along the western periphery of the cyclone. The weather is cloudy with clearings … The air is saturated with moisture and warm. On Monday, the temperature is 25-29, and in the region up to 30 degrees “, – said the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center in his commentary”RIA News“.
Wilfand added that the decrease in night temperatures will become much more noticeable: from Wednesday this figure will be 10-15 degrees.
The day before, on the first day of August, hail took place in St. Petersburg.
An employee of the Phobos weather center, Yevgeny Tishkovets, sharing the details of weather forecasts for August in Moscow, said that this month would be the opposite of July – “rainy and moderately warm.”
