The first month of the calendar fall in most parts of Russia will be a little warmer than usual, and rain will fall at or slightly less than normal, said on Friday Hydrometeorological Center of Russia.
According to the forecast distribution of anomalies of temperature and precipitation in September in Russia the average monthly temperature will be near normal, or one degree above historical averages. The only cold spot is located in the northeast of Yakutia and Magadan region — here the September temperature is below normal by about 0.5 degrees.
Precipitation in the European part of Russia will correspond approximately to normal. As expected, the land will usually be restricted to areas along the coast of the Caspian Sea, in particular, Dagestan and southern Astrakhan region. In the southern Urals — in Bashkortostan and Orenburg region, in contrast, rainfall is above normal by more than 20%.
Extensive "dry" area in September will be in Western Siberia — from the Yamal and Taimyr to Buryatia and Tuva. It falls below 80% of normal rainfall. Along the coast of the Sea of Okhotsk — in Kamchatka, Sakhalin and Magadan region — precipitation will fall more than usual.
