Meteorological spring has come to Moscow
“In Moscow, the beginning of climatic spring was previously considered March 27, but after this year’s transition to new climate norms calculated for the period from 1991 to 2020, and taking into account recent climate changes, this date falls on March 21,” the report says.
According to weather forecasters, the meteorological spring of 2023 in Moscow began on March 14. Since that day, the average daily air temperature has exceeded 0 degrees. A strong positive temperature deviation has accumulated in the city, which can cancel the negative daily average temperatures this Saturday. Forecasts no longer promise prolonged cold spells.
It is specified that the meteorological spring of 2023 in Moscow began exactly a week earlier than the climate norm. Meanwhile, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia Roman Vilfand said that on Saturday, March 18, high atmospheric pressure is expected in Moscow. According to the forecast, the anticyclone will bring atmospheric pressure to the capital 17 millimeters above the norm.
