In Crimea, an abnormally warm temperature was recorded for January – on Tuesday, January 5, it was plus 17.6 degrees, the TASS agency reports with reference to the forecaster of the Crimean meteorological center.
Thus, the thermometer for the entire observation period, starting from 1916, rose above the maximum value set in 1931. At that moment, plus 14.4 degrees was considered a record.
“The temperature record has been exceeded by 3.2 degrees,” said the forecaster. He also said that such leaps and new maximum heat values are not expected on the peninsula in the near future. The hydrometeorological center predicted a cold snap after January 10.
For the entire time of meteorological observations in Crimea, the lowest thermometer for January 5 is considered to be minus 18.1 degrees, the agency’s source added.
Earlier, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, promised the Russians from a number of regions a springtime. Warm weather is predicted in Crimea and on the Black Sea coast, the temperature in the near future will be above normal by 6-7 degrees.
