Russian meteorologists expect extreme winter around December-January 2021/22

Russian Meteorologists promise frosty December and January and planet-cooling La Niña phenomenon.

Meteorologists of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia have just made a weather forecast for the entire cold half of the year, from October 2021 to March 2022. Specialists from the North Eurasian Climate Center, the Main Geophysical Observatory named after V.I. A.I. Voeikov, Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute, Far Eastern Regional Research Hydrometeorological Institute created an extremely cold forecast, which should be fulfilled already in a few weeks /;;

Russia’s top forecasters have warned that extreme weather is predicted to hit the Northern Hemisphere later this year and early January 2021, with a possibility of significant worsening a deepening energy crisis setting in across parts of Europe.

Extremely cold conditions are predicted to hit Russia in December 2021 and in early January 2022, with snow in Siberia estimated to reach levels twice as severe as the average.

Meteorological center Phobos reported that “snowdrifts almost a quarter larger than the norm” are forecasted to hit Moscow, soon.

November 2021 will be warmer than the climatic norm in the Urals and most of Siberia, yet.

December 2021 is on Russian forecast maps blue and light blue! It means, that the temperature will be below the climatic norm. An intense blue zone was outlined from Kazan, Samara, and Perm through Yekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk, Omsk, and Novosibirsk to Tomsk and Kemerovo.

January 2022 is forecasted within the climatic norm or slightly higher, but in many regions, cold winter conditions should be peaking, yet. e.g. in the Far East, from Chukotka to Khabarovsk is a chance to freeze more than usual.

February 2022 promises very warm conditions.

This outlook sets with Mkweather Winter 2021/2022 forecasts from the last period, therefore we decided to publish a report about these predictions /;;

December 2021 is here already in around 7 weeks and in Europe, an unexpected gas crisis is still possible, if Siberian air prematurely floods European countries, with an increase of consumption of energies.

According to ECMWF and CFS models, such is mentioned in the links above, AO- / NAO- or AO neutral / NAO neutral conditions should persist in Europe around November, December, and early January 2021/2022, while Warm NE Pacific blob, associated with NAO+/AO+ and organized polar vortex with very warm conditions in Europe are forecasted for February and March 2022.

Already in the next article, we will update Mkweather 6-week ECMWF forecast until 15. November 2021, therefore, stay watch weather with us.
