With the end of January, the period of active cold weather in the European territory of Russia may end.
In February, in most of the European part of the country, the weather will be warmer than usual. Within the normal range – only in the north, Lyudmila Parshina, head of the laboratory of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, told Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
According to the forecaster, in Moscow – the predominant night temperature in February is minus 5-10, in the daytime from zero to minus 5 degrees. But this February could be warmer. Periods of cooling are not excluded, when at night the thermometers will drop to minus 20 degrees.
Approximately the same temperature is expected in the northwest – in the Novgorod, Pskov and Leningrad regions.
In February, there is usually little precipitation, but this year it is predicted that there will be more of them in the middle lane, which also indicates frequent thaws. Only in the north of the Volga region can there be a shortage of precipitation. The weather is expected to be slightly frosty. At night it is mostly minus 15 degrees, during the day – minus 6-11.
Frequent thaws are expected in the Rostov Region and the Krasnodar Territory. The temperature will be positive.
Winter will still show its temper in Siberia and the Far East, with the exception of the extreme southern regions of the Far East – the south of the Khabarovsk Territory, Primorye. Thus, one degree colder than normal is expected in the autonomous districts of Siberia, in the south of Western Siberia, in particular, in the Novosibirsk and Tomsk regions, in the north of the central regions of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, in Evenkia, throughout Yakutia, as well as in the north of the Amur and Magadan regions and Khabarovsk Territory, in Chukotka. Little precipitation is predicted in the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, in Yakutia and other regions where temperatures are forecast to be below normal. For example, in the south of Western Siberia at night up to minus 20, in the daytime up to minus 14 degrees. But 30-degree frosts are also possible. In the north of Yakutia, quite often in February, 40-degree night frosts still hold. And in the north-west of Yakutia, 50-degree frosts are also possible. Severe frosts persist in the north of the Amur Region.
It can also be frosty in the Urals: at night up to minus 19, in the daytime up to minus 10 degrees.
