Waiting for Indian Summer
In September, Indian summer will come to the European part of Russia. This was announced on Wednesday by the supervisor of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia Roman Vilfand.
“According to preliminary calculations, in September there will be a period of Indian summer. This is what we see now. It will be hard to say what it will be, but it will be Indian summer, ”the weather forecaster told TASS.
Villefand noted that it is too early to make accurate forecasts of temperature and precipitation for the first month of autumn. Nevertheless, according to the weather forecaster, next month we should expect including inclement weather.
“When we predict Indian summer in September, we understand, by definition, that this is a period of good dry weather after a prolonged bad weather. Therefore, when we expect Indian summer, we actually click on bad weather, inclement weather that needs to be experienced and then enjoy the Indian summer, ”said the weather forecaster.
He also added that an unusual weather situation was observed last year, as the summer lasted almost until the end of the first month of autumn.
“The summer actually lasted until September 20, so there’s no need to talk about Indian summer last September - it was just warm weather, then, from September 22, it got colder, it sleeted, it rained, and October is Indian summer,” says Villefand.
According to Anatoly Tsygankov, deputy head of the Roshydromet situational center, “Indian summer” is the period at the end of September, which lasts about a week and has elevated temperatures compared to normal.
“This refers to the second half of September, when there is high pressure, an anticyclone, the sun is shining and the average daily temperature rises by 5-7 degrees. This is a dry and relatively warm period, but it can still freeze at night. In the afternoon it’s warm and dry, ”said the weather forecaster.
