The air temperature will be within the normal range or slightly higher. At the same time, according to the forecaster, in a number of regions of the country, daily temperature values will not reach normal levels – from 19 to 24 degrees Celsius. We are talking about the Krasnodar and Stavropol Territories, the Rostov and Volgograd Regions, as well as the North Caucasus, where street thermometers will not show more than + 9-12 degrees at night.
Up to +10 … + 15 degrees during the day the air will warm up in May in the Altai Territory and in the Altai Republic, as well as in the central and southern regions of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, in the Tomsk and Kemerovo Regions. At the same time, the thermometers there can drop to 5 degrees at night, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.
In the middle lane, according to forecasters, it will be warm next month. During the day, the air temperature will be from + 20 degrees and above, and at night + 10 degrees is expected. When it gets colder at night, the temperature there can drop to 2-7 degrees Celsius, and in the daytime – up to + 11-16 degrees.
The weather in the Far East in May promises to meet temperature standards. So, at night in the region it is expected + 5-10 degrees, and in the daytime – 15-20 degrees above zero, the expert emphasized.
At the same time, in the traditionally coldest regions of the country – in the east of Taimyr and in Yakutia, it will be warmer than usual in May. There, the air temperature can be up to +10 degrees.

Heavy rains in May are expected in the Bryansk, Kursk, Belgorod regions, in the Amur region and in the center of the Khabarovsk Territory, as well as in Yamal and in the north-east of Yakutia.
Earlier Friday, Parshina warned that freezing temperatures at night would return to the metropolitan area next week. The weather forecaster noted that the cold snap is associated with the arrival of a Scandinavian cyclone in Moscow and the Moscow region, which will displace all warm anticyclones.
