the Head of hydrometeorological centre Roman Vilfand cites similar data. “In the region of Western Siberia, near the Gulf of Ob, the excess was nine degrees. Of course, this is a unique situation and a very rare event. In Salekhard a deviation from the norm is about eight degrees, in a sufficiently large region in the North of Western Siberia anomaly was +8 or more. The area where the mentioned anomaly of +6, more vastly, it includes the Gulf of Ob, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Tyumen oblast,” — said Vilfand in comments to RIA Novosti.

Abnormalities in Siberia began in January, said in comments to AFP, a senior researcher at the Copernicus service of Freya Bamberg. In may the temperature was a record for the observation period from 1981 to 2010.
