Russia – Frosts pose a danger to crops

“They  they are very likely to be damaged.”

Frosts were recorded last night in the Volga, Bryansk, Orel, and ‘Moscow’ regions. Also frostbite in the Rostov, Astrakhan, Volgograd and Stavropol regions.

A huge anticyclone retains its influence over most of the European territory of Russia.

Last night in the Nizhny Novgorod region, in Bashkortostan, frosts were observed to -5 degrees. In the Saratov region to -2, in the Penza – to -1, in the Perm region to -3.

On the night and early morning on September 28, frosts to -1 degrees were recorded in Bryansk and Orel regions, in the Moscow region in Tchurusti the temperature dropped to -1.7 degrees, in Kolomna and Egorievsk it was -0.4 degrees.

“(These frosts) pose a danger to agricultural crops, their damage is very likely.””

  1. as the USA is the Mekka for west-EU I only hear weatherforecasts from EU&US. Nevertheless foodprices will be up due toweatherconditions everywhere

  2. wondering what crops?
    going into autumn so green veg and winter wheat
    oh winter wheat prob isnt grown in a place where winter is feet of snow…whoopsie me;-)
    i admit being curious to know what

    • Hi Laurel:

      We grow lots of winter wheat here in the Great Lakes region of Ontario, Canada. Also can get “feet” of snow.

  3. Corrected post:

    Avid reader of the site for over a year.

    I fear that without context, this news is no different than the climate propaganda shills of Al Gore.

    Are these record temperatures? How often have frosts like this occurred in say the last 100 years.

    Remember that during the Maunder Minimum there were still severe heat waves and drought… in the middle of a mini ice age.

    Without context, just viewing the heat waves and drought, one could argue for global warming.

    It’s not hard to add context but I look for it in every article here and my estimate is that less than 15% of the articles here provide context.

    • Quote: Remember that during the Maunder Minimum there were still severe heat waves and drought… in the middle of a mini ice age.
      Comment: You’re correct, including droughts and famine in Asia and China during Dalton. I think the point being made was that the growing seasons were shortened and abruptly ended in some years of the Minimum because of the meridional nature of the jet stream weather systems and the blocking highs and lows which form between the Jet Stream waves.
      SC20 experienced similar weather extremes, although in the UKs case we had one major heatwave in 1976 and several cold winters, with one snowy one – 1963.
      We normally have 1 harsh winter every 10 to 12 years and loads of cold soggy summers dependent on the Azores High ridging across the country on the odd occasion , with this one just finished being very wet from July to October.
      Not every year had a cold winter, yet good summers remain few and far between.

  4. In Moscow, at night, however, without clouds it was cold – the temperature dropped to + 1..3 ° C, there were frosts in the region (in the east and northeast of the Moscow region).
    But by day, thanks to the Sun, the air will warm up to +8 .. + 10ºC.
    True, this is not enough: the average daily temperature due to a cold night will be 2-3°C below the climatic norm (and the norm for October 2 in Moscow: +7.9 ° C).
    As for the records, both records fall on the last century, they were installed with a difference of one year.
    So, in 1898 in Moscow on October 2 the air cooled to -5.8°C, and in 1899 – it got warm to +22.3!
    *If you read the news, there are ‘registers’ of temperature, but not all are records.
    Record is one thing and record is another one.
    When I translate the word register it translates to ‘record’ but sometimes that means just ‘register’.
    A record with respect to which period? The record (on this Russian site) they compare with the same date.
    Depends on where you live, but It’s not necessary to have cold record temps to kill a whole crop.
