Heat waves: Moscow and St. Petersburg are preparing for new temperature records

In the European part of Russia was established anomalous heat. In Moscow weather forecasters are expecting their second consecutive temperature record.

Early in the morning because uplotnitelya cloudiness in the capital was quite comfortable. At 6 a.m. the thermometer showed 18 degrees. But then the clouds became less and the air started to warm up actively.

And in Moscow and St. Petersburg people in the heat looking for salvation at the water — beaches and recreation areas, in spite of the weekdays, are overcrowded. A young Baltic ringed seals, which, because of poor health deprived of the opportunity to swim in the sea, water from a hose. Biologists have observed that animals are outside the box reacted to the heat. They began to drink fresh water, although usually do not replenish water and balance due to the fish.

on the Eve of St. Petersburg, as in Moscow, the nature rewrote metastatistics. However, the city on the Neva record was a little “younger” — in 1905. Plus nearly 30 degrees is a unique case in the Baltic. Only in European Russia has been updated ten maximums.

Today, forecasters expect new records. Chances are and at St. Petersburg, and Moscow. In the capital under the threat of another one of the oldest records in 1895. Then on 18 June, the air warmed up to 31.3 degrees. The same mark, but in 1905, stopped the thermometers in the city on the Neva. It may be rewritten statistics in Tver and Pskov.

predictive map you can see that today the area is 30-degree heat will cover the Western regions of European Russia. To the South of our country sometimes the air will warm up to 35 degrees and above. The Eastern and Northern areas will be in the area of comfortable coolness — from 20 to 25 degrees.

the Uneven heating of air at different altitudes leads to the development of extraordinarily powerful cumulonimbus clouds. Before after volley rains drowned Krasnodar, Kazan and Yaroslavl. Machine room lost in deep puddles, and some just failed due to water hammer. Stronger of all the disaster affected southern regions. In Adygea, in the village of Khatukay, was hail the size of a walnut. The car is literally riddled with chunks of ice. Damaged roofs of hundreds of houses.

the radar On the map there are already the first arrays cumulonimbus clouds. Exposure are fixed only on the South of the Vladimir and Nizhny Novgorod regions, in the Northern districts of the Ryazan region, on the West and South of Mordovia and in the center of Samara oblast. This path of scattered clouds concentrated along the eroded cold atmospheric front and during the day will increase in size and intensity.

Most of the day, the capital will be on the southwestern periphery of the anticyclone fine with anomalously high thermal background close to the record 125 years ago. The temperature will continue to rise in the daytime will be 30-32 degrees. Perhaps the fall of the record in 1895, when it was 31.3 degrees plus. However, in the evening will approach atmospheric front from the North-East, because of what heaven will frown and will increase the probability of a local transient showers and thunderstorms that will freshen the air for up to 25-28 degrees, and by midnight and 20 degrees.
