Weather in May 2018
In the last month of spring, as a rule, a truly warm weather is established. This year differs from the previous ones in that spring came with a delay of two weeks. Snow in the central part of Russia lay almost until the end of March. I wonder how this will affect the temperature indicators of the next months? Does the weather for May 2018 also give us unpleasant surprises?
Weather in Russia
It should be noted that the weather forecast in different regions of our country will differ from each other. Russia occupies a vast territory and therefore it has various climatic zones. If in the central European part of the Russian Federation stable heat will be observed in May, then only the first signs of spring will be visible in the north of our country. Spring also comes in Siberia later than in the European part of the country. But in the southern regions one can observe not only warm weather, but already, one can say, quite summer. In Kuban or in the Astrakhan region, temperatures in May can reach significant sizes.To understand how wide the average temperatures in May are in the regions of the country, you can take a look at this table, which shows the average temperatures inherent in the last month of spring. It shows the temperature indicators, which are based on statistical data of recent years:

As the table shows, the weather in Russia is very diverse. It is clear that here are the average temperatures, and the forecast is not accurate. If you are going to travel or business trip to any region of the country, it is better to contact one of the meteorological services: Gismeteo, Hydrometeorological Center, Phobos, etc. There you can find a more accurate forecast for the upcoming period. Moreover, the closer to the date of interest, the forecast will be more accurate. These services constantly monitor the climate in the country and therefore you will find the most reliable weather data on them.

In the old days, the last month of spring was called “grass”. And it is not by chance at all. During this period, there is a complete revival of nature. The grass grows vigorously, all kinds of trees start to bloom and begin to bloom. The air is filled with all sorts of flavors. It is conducive to a positive mood. There is no desire to leave the street. I would like to continue to observe the changes in nature. The sun gently caresses the skin, and yet there is no sweltering heat.
