1.5ºC annual average warming predicted in Russia over next 30 years

Vladimir Semyonov is Deputy Director of the Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The Russian News Agency TASS reported from a recent press conference summarising the current climate atmospheric position based on the Institute’s science. The Institute is an IPCC contributor and collaborator:

According to him, the warming will be accompanied by a change in the weather’s character since the atmospheric moisture-holding capacity will increase which will lead to blocking anticyclones and the drying of soil. When an anticyclone changes to a cold front, heavy rains and storms form. This is being observed increasingly more in middle latitudes although previously it was typical of the country’s southern part.

“The climate is becoming more unstable yet if one looks at the statistics of the temperature’s variability, then on Russian territory it is getting lower in all the spans of variability: the synoptic and interdiurnal ones. Temperature jumps objectively become smaller and this is logical because with global warming the temperature contrast in general is getting smaller,”
