Rainfall for 90 percent of the territory of Moldova was 20-55 mm

Forecasters promised that by mid-October in the country established dry weather, and weak, intermittent rain will not improve the situation.

— Dry weather will last until mid-October, — said on Wednesday, September 28, the director of the State Hydrometeorological Service Ilya Boyan.

In August and September on the territory of Moldova registered a significant rainfall deficit. Rainfall in this period by 90 percent of the country was 20-55 mm, which is 25-60 percent of normal, and in 10 percent of the country rainfall reached only 10-20 percent of normal. A similar situation was observed with the amount of precipitation in 1952, 1953, 1982 and 1990, — Bojan said.
