MOSCOW, May 5 (Itar-Tass) - After a record-breaking cold March, April in Russia was ranked among the ten warmest since beginning of regular weather observation in 1891, according to the Russian weather service.
Average monthly air temperatures were below the norm only in the southern districts of the Far Eastern Khabarovsk and Primorsky Territories.
Average April air temperatures exceeded the norm by four to nine degrees in the Urals and Siberian federal districts, while in the rest of Russia air temperature were above the average by two to three degrees.
The cold weather in the first and third ten-day period of April in the Central federal district was compensated in the second ten-day period, so an average monthly temperature was close to the norm or slightly over it.
There were twice or thrice as much of atmospheric fallouts, rains or snow, as usual in the Far Eastern Sakhalin Island, in the Kamchatka Peninsula, and in the Magadan region. Mean monthly precipitation was above the norm in some regions of the Volga federal district (the republics of Mordovia and Bashkotrostan), and the North Caucasian federal district (the republic of Chechnya and Ingushetia).
In Moscow, April 2012 was ranked among the ten “wettest” since 1891, with 64 millimeters of precipitation - the biggest figure for the past 27 years.
