The climate in Russia may change in the next 50 years. According to the RAS forecast, droughts, forest fires and prolonged rains in some regions of the country may become more frequent.

According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", For such changes, a warming of 3-4 degrees is enough. According to the head of the laboratory of climatology at the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the deputy director of the Institute of Atmospheric Physics. Obukhov RAS Vladimir Semyonov, in Russia it is warming faster than in southern latitudes.

Heat waves will become more intense and frequent due to the increase in temperatures. This process has already been observed in the last ten years. They, in turn, will provoke forest fires, which have now become more frequent in Siberia, the Far East and the Central District. Also, the warming will be felt by city dwellers.

As noted by the head of the Situation Center of Roshydromet, Yuri Varakin, over the past half century, the percentage of air mass transfer from north to south and vice versa has increased from 15% to 30%. This leads to the fact that dry periods of one to two weeks are more often established, which lead to forest fires. And after the southern cyclones block the high-pressure area, prolonged rains begin. Such phenomena are especially vividly observed in Western Siberia, Yakutia, southern and central districts.
