Winter-2020 in Russia at the temperature record over the last 140 years. The reason for the anomaly - barrier winds over the North pole

the winter of 2020, will set an absolute record heat in the whole history of meteorological observations, which are conducted in Russia about 140 years. The previous record was recorded in the winter of 1961, then the average temperature for the three months amounted to only 2.8 degrees below zero. In 2020, this record will be broken.

“This winter, the average temperature will be higher… of course In Moscow it will be the warm winter. No doubt about it. The temperature of the entire season was extremely high. I think that in the coming years, this record is impossible to beat, and this winter will go down in history”, – said the scientific head of the hydrometeorological center of Russia Roman Vilfand.

But what was the reason for this abnormally warm winter in Russia, tried to explain to the Agency Bloomberg published the result of his discussions with the meteorologists.

According to experts, the culprit was an area of extremely low pressure over the North pole, which due to the collision of air masses, tending to the North, and winds, constantly circulating in the region, has created an insurmountable barrier for the cold.

This phenomenon may be due to a combination of temporary weather factors and the effects of global warming on the planet. At the moment, air temperature in the United States three degrees above the average winter increased in the twentieth century. If the situation will remain unchanged until 29 February, this winter will be the warmest in the United States for 141 years.

“we are not Talking about a single point of heat, but a wave,” says meteorologist Bob Henson from the American Corporation IBM.

November 2019 was very warm and took second place in the temperature rating, second only to November 2016, said the world meteorological organization (WMO), noting that the second place among the most warm and also took the autumn season in 2019 and the period from January to November. In January 2020, the temperature in Russia, in some areas of Scandinavia and Eastern Canada exceeded the average for this month at five degrees. The past month has been the warmest in Europe during the conduct of climate observations.

According to the publication Bloomberg, the above mentioned barrier winds on the way cold weather is not a new phenomenon. It is this year diminished, or is enhanced, as usual, depending on the pressure drops, but remains stable for a long time. This fact should be of interest to scholars on the subject of the relationship with climate change on Earth. In this case, draws on such factors as record-high temperature recorded in January for four consecutive years, says Bloomberg.

According to the report of the world meteorological organization, published in early December of 2019, the period 2010-2019 with a high degree of probability will be the warmest decade in the history of observations, and 2019 will be among the three warmest years. These preliminary forecasts WMO was based on weather data from January to October last year. Final conclusions about the state of the climate in 2019, the WMO planned to submit in March.
