In Oymyakon, winter has come very early: On 10. September a new record: -14,8°C (!)




Already in the last articles, we were informed about early cold blasts across Northern Hemisphere snowing in Fuji, Japan, 25 days earlier than average /https://mkweather.com/the-first-snowfall-in-fuji-japan-extremely-early-25-days-earlier-than-average//, snowing in Canada /https://mkweather.com/it-will-be-hard-winter-canada-under-the-snow-until-20-september-2021-including-southern-densely-populated-parts-where-70-cm-27-inches-is-possible/; https://mkweather.com/the-first-snowfall-of-the-season-in-the-rocky-mountains-montana-wyoming-colorado-utah-alberta-british-columbia-yukon-nwt-alaska// or frosts and cold weather in Europe /https://mkweather.com/snow-hasnt-melted-in-2021-in-sonnblick-austria-3107-masl-last-time-it-happened-in-2016-still-92-cm-snow-cover/; https://mkweather.com/statistics-the-coldest-measured-temperatures-in-europe-during-the-august-2021-coldwave/; https://mkweather.com/the-extremely-cold-air-is-already-in-southern-europe-greece-61c-north-macedonia-48c-romania-slovenia-34c-croatia-30c-2-3c-above-all-time-august-records/; https://mkweather.com/before-heatwave-frosts-and-ground-frosts-ukraine-04c-belarus-02c-hungary-12c-lithuania-13c-moldova-20c-slovenia-24c-north-macedonia-25c//.

It appears, that winter season 2021 wants to come prematurely, because the next untraditionally strong coldwave appeared in Siberia – Oymyakon, Yakutsk, reported on 10. September 2021 a new daily record of temperature!

So cold in Oymyakon has never been in the period 2.-13. September in any year measured – the minimum temperature dropped to -14,8°C.

A record from the first 13 September days holds 1. September 1969 with only -15,1°C.

In August 2020, a similar coldwave, with almost -10°C appeared /report on our old webpage: https://mkweather.com/oymyakon-96c-147f-36c-from-absolute-august-record-this-year-the-autumn-season-came-to-the-republic-of-yakutia-early//.

Extremely cold weather was reported from Delyankir, too, with a minimum temperature of only -14,4°C.

In the next period, a coldwave from Europe will be shifting above western half of Siberia /https://mkweather.com/ecmwf-6-week-forecast-until-18-10-2021-europe-north-america-world//.

While in Western Siberia, Mkweather Autumn 2021 and Winter 2021/2022 forecasts promise early and winter severe cold blasts, in Eastern Siberia should surprise mainly snow calamities and blizzards /https://mkweather.com/autumn-2021-forecast-for-asia-strong-monsoon-for-s-se-e-asia-hot-and-dry-in-the-middle-east-late-siberian-cold-blasts-in-w-siberia-and-snow-calamities-in-e-siberia/; https://mkweather.com/winter-2021-2022-forecast-the-first-reliable-estimates-extreme-cold-blasts-from-canada-and-western-siberia-snow-in-western-europe-and-eastern-asia-la-nina-qbo-to-qbo-shift-sufficient-nao-ao//, which should hit Mongolia, NE China or Japan, too.
