Summer 2020 was the hottest on record in the Northern Hemisphere. This was announced by the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center, Roman Vilfand, with reference to the express analysis of Roshydromet on September 3.

“Roshydromet conducted an express analysis of the temperature regime over the past summer, and, as calculations show, the average temperature for the period from June to September turned out to be a record warm for the entire observation period in the Northern Hemisphere,” the TASS expert quotes.

According to the forecaster, temperatures exceeded normal almost everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, but the brightest anomalies were recorded in the Arctic, where temperatures during the season averaged 3-5 degrees above normal.

Last summer there was the warmest in the history of meteorological observations, said Wilfand.

Earlier on September 3, Roman Vilfand named the region with the most problematic weather in the near future. He noted that this is due to a typhoon in the southeast of the country – in the Amur and Jewish Autonomous Regions, in the south of the Khabarovsk Territory and in the Primorsky Territory. He predicted a slight improvement in the weather after the typhoon, but a new typhoon is “on the way”.
