“Everyone knows that the gravitational bonds of the moon and the earth cause the tides in the ocean. But the exact same gravitational effect is exerted by the Moon on the “fifth ocean” - on the Earth’s atmosphere, ”he said in an interview with the newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets.

As Sidorenko clarified, the 206-day cycle affects processes in the atmosphere and hydrosphere of the Earth.

“This was most clearly manifested in how the climate in the European part of Russia deviated from the norm in 2016-2017. A 206-day cycle is visible there. That is, the abnormal warming was repeated after 206 days, as well as the abnormal cooling, ”he added.

Earlier weather forecasters warned that, starting from August 8, “weather mini-collapse” awaits Moscow, weather forecasters warn that an Atlantic cyclone will cover the capital, thunderstorms and rains are expected.

August 4 and 5 became the coldest in the central part of Russia since 1948. As the chief specialist of the Phobos weather center, Evgeny Tishkovets, noted, this was due to the action of a part of the cyclone, which "continues to provide an ultra-polar invasion."
