27 April 2020

This statement was made by the Meteorological Office of the country.

2020 will be one of the five hottest years, reports “St. Petersburg” TV channel with reference to Roman Vilfand, the director of Russia’s Weather Service.

According to Vilfand, we are talking about the temperature measured in the surface air, two meters above the ground. Every five years, the average temperature rises, which is caused by global warming and steady increase in the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

We previously reported that the current week in St. Petersburg would begin with wet snow and rain.
