Three unfavorable factors at once: the weather forecaster promised Muscovites new weather difficulties in addition to smog22.08.2022
If in the daytime, when the sun peeps through, the wind increases a little, and it becomes easier to breathe, then at night it is the other way around.
“The maximum harmful concentration is reached in the early morning, from 5 to 9. During these hours, the concentration of harmful substances can increase by 1.5-2 times. This is bad visibility. Even if the fires are eliminated, we will breathe burning at least until Wednesday, August 24th. The burning will be especially felt in the East and North-East Administrative District, as well as in these areas in the Moscow Region, ”the forecaster shares.
The first improvements will come by Thursday. Moscow will be in the center of the anticyclone, calm will set in, and wind currents will begin to interfere with each other, dispersing the fumes.
“But here is a new nuisance: heat and weak magnetic storms will be mixed with the fire. That is, this week we are waiting for three unfavorable factors at once, which will show themselves in full. By Friday, August 26, a cold atmospheric front will pass, the wind will change direction by 180 degrees and it will be easier to breathe. But much in this story depends on the success of the rescuers,” concluded our interlocutor.
