Meteorologist Inna Latysheva announced what the spring and summer of 2022 will be like

Spring is predicted to be wetter in the south and drier in the north, the head of the basic department of the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences – the Department of Meteorology and Physics of Near-Earth Space of the Geographical Faculty of Irkutsk State University Inna Latysheva told RG.

The beginning of summer is expected to be more humid and its middle is expected to be drier. Most likely, the already habitual trend of alternating heat and cold waves will continue.

As for the Siberian regions, according to the CFS (Climate Forecasting System) model, February is expected to be cooler, with the exception of the southern regions of Western Siberia and the Krasnoyarsk Territory. And March is cooler in the central regions of Western Siberia and the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Spring and early summer are expected to be colder, and July is expected to be warmer.

All these forecasts, the meteorologist emphasized, are probabilistic in nature. So far, the prevailing negative temperature anomalies can be explained by the persisting cold episode of La Niña (a decrease in ocean surface temperature) over a large area of ​​the equatorial Pacific Ocean. And also by the influence of cold cyclonic eddies over Siberia at heights.

“By the way, according to climatic maps, in 2021 the Arctic, China, North Africa and North America became the record holders for heat in our Northern Hemisphere,” noted Latysheva. “For Russia, this year turned out to be colder than the abnormally warm 2020 by more than 2 degrees . Temperatures above normal prevailed over most of Russia only in April, August and November. Winter cold was associated with an increase in polar anticyclones, and, as a consequence, a weakening of the influence of Atlantic cyclones in the interior of the continent. “
