Anomalously severe cold in Siberia

I wonder how much ice will melt at −44°C (-47F).

On November 11 in Yakutia, the daily temperature never rose above −30°C (-22F). Some parts of Siberia were even colder:In Evenkia and the northern regions of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, the temperature dropped to −41 … −44°C.

This temperature is considered very low for this time of year.

“””It is important to note that this is not a short-term cooling, but a prolonged atmospheric process. Further it will become even colder. The cold anomaly will expand.”””

In the Khanty-Mansiysk District night temperatures will drop to −25 … −30°C, and in places to −37°C. In the north of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, you can count on −38 … −43°C.

In the Irkutsk region, nightly values ​​will decrease to −30 … −35°C.

In Tomsk Oblast, the prevailing temperature at night will be −23 … −28°C.

Cooling to a lesser extent will affect Western Siberia. In the Omsk region, “only” up to −21°C.×519.png

  1. I wonder how much ice will melt at −44°C (-47F).

    Not much if any. May be if Al Gore and his allies breath heavy on it but I doubt it.

  2. 23 degrees F in Dallas overnight? Are you kidding me? That’s average midwinter in the Rocky Mountains!!! Maybe a typo? I mean it eas that cold here, the airmass isn’t going to modify at all? We’re just on the edge of it here I guess.

  3. We had 11F last night in MO, after a day of snow, freezing rain and stinging little ice particles blowing sideways… On Sunday it was perfect-70F, sunny with no wind.

    That’s a radical shift, even for MO. We must have finally gotten on the wrong side of the jet stream.
