Daytime temperatures will exceed normal by 6-8 degrees over the coming weekend in central European Russia due to the influence of warm air mass that has formed over the Atlantic and southern Mediterranean. This was announced in an interview with RIA Novosti by the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand.
According to him, Moscow and the center of the European part of the country were located on the western periphery of a low-pressure hollow, which forms the circulation of the flow: in the west – northern, in the south – western, and the eastern periphery – southern. As a result, Moscow found itself on the eastern periphery of the warm air mass at the end of the week.
