In St. Petersburg, May became the warmest month in one hundred years
For the first time in one hundred years, the average temperature in May exceeded 15 degrees. The beginning of summer is promised to be warm as well but would bring rain to the city.
The main meteorologist of St. Petersburg Alexander Kolesov commented that final conclusion can be made only after 31st of May, but it is already clear that the record has been reached. Michael Leus, the leading specialist of the weather center "Phobos", agrees with this statement. On his social media page, the expert has noted that May 2018, in the history of weather observations will take the third place. The warmer months have been recorded only 1897th (the average temperature reached 16.2 degrees) and in 1906 (average temperature 15.7 degrees).
Aside from the surprisingly warm weather, May has brought the least amount of precipitation, only 36% of the norm, commented Kolesov.
The first month of summer is predicted to be less warm comparing to the hot May, but cold weather is not expected either. The temperature during June will close to normal, variably cloudy, with periodic rains and temperature about 20 degrees Celsius during the day.
