In the Kaliningrad region and some regions in the north of European Russia, abnormally warm weather will set in. The temperature will exceed the norm by four to five degrees.

The scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center Roman Vilfand told about this to RIA Novosti.

- It's incredibly warm in the Kaliningrad region. The water temperature is 21-22 degrees, the air temperature is above 25 degrees, it can reach 30 degrees. This weather has been around for a week, and it will continue until the middle of next week. Temperatures are four to five degrees above normal. This is a rare situation for the second half of August, and on some days there were temperature records, - noted Vilfand, adding that Kaliningrad will face the same weather as on the Black Sea coast, except that the water temperature is lower - 21-22 degrees.

In St. Petersburg, Arkhangelsk and Murmansk regions, as well as in Karelia, the air temperature will exceed the norm by four to six degrees. Let us remind you that there were frosts recently.

- In Murmansk, 17-18 degrees Celsius, in St. Petersburg - 23-25 degrees, - concluded Vilfand.

Recall that the US National Meteorological Service recorded the highest temperature on record.
