February 2022, as meteorologists promised earlier, turned out to be unusually hot in Russia. In much of the Russian plain in the last month of the calendar winter 2021/2022, the temperature background exceeds normal values by an average of 5-10 degrees.
At the same time, instead of February snow, the territory of our country is watered abundantly with rains, which are accompanied by strong gusts of wind.
Most “lucky” residents of northeastern and central Russia. Thus, almost spring rains with tornadoes covered the southern regions of Karelia, Leningrad, Novgorod, Pskov, Tver, Kaluga, Vladimir and Yaroslavl.
In Moscow and the Moscow region, in some places it is poured like a bucket and the thermometers are still rising above 3-4 degrees Celsius.
It will be a little cooler in the coming days. Thus, in the Central Federal District, thermometers will again go to the minus sector. But in general, thawing will continue across the country – meteorologists say the weather in most parts of the Russian Federation will remain in the spring until the end of February.
As the experts explained, strong cyclonic gas masses from the Atlantic that covered the Russian plain are responsible.
Winter will return to Russia. Weather forecast from the Hydrometeorological Center for March 2022. Weather in Moscow and the Moscow region in March 2022
However, the meteorologists themselves urge the people of our country not to relax. According to their long-term forecast for March 2022, at the beginning of the calendar spring, the climatic winter will return to Russia with abnormal frosts and snowfall.
This, in particular, warned the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand. According to him, closer to the end of February in the central and northwestern regions of the Russian Federation, it may become very cold. At the same time, the frosts here will probably last at least until mid-March.
Thus, in Moscow and the Moscow region, the air will probably cool to minus 15. But as the Hydrometeorological Center explained, such temperature indicators are not yet unusual for early spring, as in terms of climate, March is a winter month for Russia.
Irregular frosts will cover Russia. Where is the coldest place in March 2022?
This will be fully felt by the inhabitants of the northern regions of Siberia. For example, in Taimyr, Yamal, the Magadan region and north of Kamchatka, weather thermometers will show temperatures above the March average.
40 degree frosts are expected in Taimir. In Yakutia, thermometers will fall below minus 45.
In Primorsky Krai in early spring, according to meteorological forecasts, winter weather will prevail with temperatures up to minus 15 degrees and heavy snowfall. But in the neighboring Khabarovsk Territory, as well as in the Irkutsk region, southern Siberia and Buryatia, “drought” is forecast – here the rainfall will fall much less than usual.
At the same time, in the Urals, central Siberia and Sakhalin, snowstorms, road drifts and lower temperatures are promised.
Meteorologists also promise terrible weather with abnormal frosts in March 2022 in the residents of St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, Kaliningrad and Murmansk, where, in all probability, the climate will decrease by an average of 6-8 degrees.
The weather in early spring 2022: what will March 2022 be like in the Crimean and Cuban resorts?
According to the long-term forecast of meteorologists, in early spring, the resorts of Crimea and Krasnodar will be in the zone of action of active marine cyclonic gas masses, under the influence of which rain will cover southern Russia. Strong winds are forecast, with gusts in places up to 25 miles per hour.
At the same time, from the beginning of the calendar spring, all the seaside resorts of the country will receive hot, humid masses, the temperature background will rise. However, as meteorologists warn, it is still unlikely that we will really enjoy the spring weather due to constant storms and rainfall.
In addition, in the mountains of Krasnodar Territory in Crimea in March 2022, there is a high probability of avalanches. Something that is understandable due to the heavy snowfall that fell this winter.
In this regard, experts advise the locals and the numerous tourists to be careful and to follow the emergency warnings of the regional departments of the Ministry of Emergency Situations.
Why will there be winter weather in Russia in March 2022?
Why will there be winter weather in Russia in March 2022? According to meteorologists, the abnormal frosts they predict will be the result of unstable solar activity, the next peak of which occurred in February. It will end just at the beginning of the climatic spring.
The main factor of winter weather in March will be the internal climate change, which is related to phase fluctuations in water temperature in the Pacific Ocean.
Thus, based on the results of the study of serious interactions between the atmosphere and the ocean, experts are now making their long-term predictions.
But the probability of such predictions is not more than 40%. Meteorological science does not allow even more accurate predictions.
