In the west of Yakutia at the Khabardino meteorological station, a temperature of -58 degrees was noted. In 38 other observation points the frost was -45 degrees. The reason for this cold snap, scientists say, is the high pressure in Mongolia, which does not allow cyclones to move to the republic.

According to TASSAccording to Nikita Tananaev, a leading researcher at the Institute of Permafrost Studies of the SB RAS, January is always the coldest month in the region. Due to the high pressure in Mongolia, atmospheric waves have formed, which do not allow air masses to move. If they come to the region, the temperature will become more moderate.

This weather, according to forecasters, will continue until January 23. In some areas, frosts will be around -57 degrees. Also, the wind will rise on the coast - up to 18 m / s. In such cold weather classes in schools are canceled in Yakutsk not for the first time. Already, the Yakut manufacturer of gels and creams for frostbite notes a twofold increase in demand.

Although frost is only a help for river navigation. The Lena River Shipping Company began freezing ships - this is a type of repair that is used only in Yakutia. The underwater part of ships is freed from ice, which makes it possible to repair the fleet.
