Record cold in Siberia

Intensive cooling in a number of settlements in the region.

In the village of Novy Port in the Yamal-Nenets District, the thermometer fell to -3, a new record low for September 13. The previous record, -2.9 degrees, was observed 17 years ago.

In Aleksandrovsky (Tomsk Oblast) it was -3.2. The previous record of September 13 -3 lasted 18 years.

In the village of Mamakan (Irkutsk Region), the new absolute minimum temperature is -4, which is 0.6 degrees lower than the previous record set in 2003.

On the night of September 15, in the Yamal-Nenets Okrug and the Irkutsk Region, frosts are expected to reach -6 degrees. /  /

  1. Well ! If this carries on and Siberia suffers a colder winter than average……..the UK and rest of Europe had better be prepared.
    If a High Pressure [cold air] builds over southern Sweden before Xmas, that very cold air will sweep westward from Siberia, won’t it?
    If the High STICKS over Sweden…….the UK will have the hard winter that has been predicted by a long-range forecast .
    They said…….”coldest January/Feb for 30 years in UK “.
    Let’s hope that is wrong………BUT I HAVE A SNEAKING FEELING IT COULD BE RIGHT !!

    • At present our Sun has been playing ball with the climate which it does very 11 yrs. during the Solar Minimum period as one cycle finishes during the 4 yrs. cycle decline, bumps on the bottom and commences the 3 yrs. rise to Solar Max of the next cycle.
      A feature of the minimum other than the absence of Sun Spots, the increased number of long lasting, large Coronial holes in the equatorial region of the Suns atmosphere, these rotate with the Sun Atmosphere every 28 days, and can last for months, The holes are linked to SAW events, Sudden Atmospheric Warming which impacts the climate system by creating large blocking High pressure systems, in Europe’s case, the Azores High ridges up over the UK and moves to Scandinavia becoming stationary. In spring and summer this leads warm or even Hot UK weather 1976 and early 2019, In the Winter period this kind of event is call the beast from the east 1947, 1963, 2010/11, and in the old British Rail parlance (1987) produces the wrong type of snow. In other words cold Dry Power which drifts.

  2. It would be nice to know from where the comments here come from ? like State or Province and Country, so we can relate to them, Thanks

  3. If the winter weather proceeds as it usually has over the last couple of decades or so, over Europe, then a high pressure feature will form over Greenland and bounce between Greenland, (sometimes via the UK), to Scandinavia/Sweden ensuring most of Europe gets alternating mild wet weather followed by very cold Arctic blasts out of Siberia. If Siberia’s temperature stays below average then Europe should expect a very cool winter season.
    Most Long Range Weather Models currently seem to indicate that this could happen fairly late in the season (end of December start of January) but could persist until March or later. However long range models (especially this early – before the winter season has really started) are generally quite poor at resolving the timing of such events accurately, though the best of them (JMA, BCC, CFS, etc.) will get the overall trend correct.
    By taking into account the Solar and lunar cycles, sea surface temperatures and the propensity for Greenland/Scandinavian high pressure features, then this winter may well be long and cold. If again there is a surfeit of noctilucent clouds (like last winter/spring) then ‘extremely cold’ could well be this winter/spring’s outlook, especially for most areas of the Northern Hemisphere (yes North America I mean you).

    Note: The next 2-4 years would probably be worse as major volcanic eruptions tend to happen 1-3 years AFTER a deep solar minimums.
    Prepare for a bumpy ride …

  4. Here in Atlanta we are baking with freaking 40c temperature and don’t know when to get cold temperatures please everyone pray for us that kills the freaking heat forever!!
