MOSCOW, June 29, 21:19 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Center for Hydrometeorology and Environment Monitoring has issued a warning saying that the risks of wildfires in many parts of the Urals, Siberia and southern Russia will remain extremely high in the coming several days.
The Newsletter of Dangerous and Complicated Unfavorable Weather Phenomena, which the center issued Sunday, points out particularly big risks of wildfires in Kalmykia in the lower Volga area and the southern districts of the Chelyabinsk region in the Urals.
June 29 and June 30, highly fire-hazardous situation will most likely be observed in the Tomsk and Irkutsk regions of Siberia, in the western districts of the Altai territory, in the Krasnoyarsk territory, in the southern Siberian region of Tuva, and in the trans-Baikal constituent republic of Buryatia.
In a market contrast to the aforementioned parts of the country, heavy rainfall is predicted for the region of Komi in the northeast of European Russia, in some places in Buryatia, in the south of the northwest region of Karelia, in the country’s westernmost region of Kaliningrad, as well as in the Legningrad, Novgorod, Pskov, Tver, and Irkutsk regions.
Also, forecasts are suggestive of heavy rains in various parts of North Caucasus, the mountainous and sub-mountainous areas of the Stavropol territory, central and southern districts of the Krasnoyarsk territory, and in the northwest of Yakutia.
Weather forecasters have warned that rains may be accompanied by gale, thunderstorms and showers of hail.
