“In some places in Moscow, a strong heat of +30 … + 32 ° C is expected,” the service’s website says.
It is specified that the warning is valid from 12:00 to 18:00 Moscow time Sunday.
The orange level of weather danger indicates the likelihood of natural disasters and damage.
According to Mikhail Yulkin, an expert at the International Center for Sustainable Energy Development under the auspices of UNESCO, against the background of an unprecedented heat that has reigned in Europe, the air temperature there has exceeded +40 degrees, it is quite possible that a wave of anomalous heat will reach Moscow. On the territory of the Russian Federation, it is getting warmer two and a half times faster than in Europe, he specified.
Tatyana Pozdnyakova, the chief specialist of the Moscow Meteorological Bureau, earlier, on July 22, explained that in the coming weekend, hot weather in the city would be determined by an area of high atmospheric pressure and an anticyclone. At the same time, the meteorologist noted that the territory of the metropolis is large, and did not rule out that in the center, where there is a lot of asphalt and high-rise buildings, the temperature could be even higher.
