Anomalous heat in Ukraine: Air temperature almost nine degrees above normal

112 Agency

Second week in a row, the day temperature of more than +30 degrees is preserved on the territory of Ukraine. According to weather forecasters, the next week will not be a cool exception: on the contrary, in some regions the heat will reach +35 by Celsius. And even precipitation, which is expected in almost all parts of the country, will not drastically change the temperature pattern.
In the eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, weather forecasters forecast day temperature from 32 to 35 degrees by Celsius, and around 20 degrees at night. In the center and in the north it will be a little cooler: +31-33 degrees during the day and +17-19 degrees at night. In the west of the country we should expect from 25 to 27 degrees during the day and about 15-17 degrees at night.

As explained the head of the Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Institute synoptic meteorology department Vira Balabukh, the air temperatures that have now been established in Ukraine are abnormal even for summer.
"According to the Szeznevsky Central Geophysical Observatory, the air temperature is almost 9 degrees above normal and this is a very significant anomaly. It is believed that the temperature is abnormal if it exceeds 1-2 degrees from the norm, and we have 9. As a rule , such high temperatures are typical for July and August in the south and south-east of Ukraine, and for the northern regions of the country 32-33 degrees is an anomaly. In addition, we have quite high temperatures at night — above 20 degrees, and this says that we have observed, so-called tropical night ", - notes Balabukh.

According to her, two factors influence the temperature rise.

"We see a change in atmospheric circulation, which leads to an increase in air temperature. In this case, we have anticyclonic - cloudless weather for quite a long period. Plus, warm air comes from southern latitudes. These two factors influence the air temperature", - summarized the scientist.
