A Siberian town that endures the world's widest temperature range has recorded a new high due to a heat wave that is contributing to severe forest fires.

In an Arctic Siberian city where the temperature has reached 100 degrees, it is a new high

Temperatures reached 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit in the small Siberian town of Verkhoyansk on Saturday, according to public-face weather data. It has record-high temperatures in one of the fastest-warming places in the world.

According to the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S), a program affiliated with the European Commission, temperatures in Siberia have been plummeting for months and years. However, it is unusual for warm-to-average temperatures to continue so long – Siberian temperatures have been above their best since 2019.

June average temperatures in Varkhoyansk reached 68 degrees Fahrenheit, so the new record-high temperatures are worrisome.

Tragic symptoms continue on Monday, when Satellite footage showed multiple wildfires In Siberia near the Arctic Circle. Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service Senior Scientist Mark Parrington Well known The number and intensity of Siberian wildfires have also increased significantly.
Ice in the Siberian river broke in the “exceptional early” month of May, the hottest May on record in the region since the record began in 1999. C3S reported.

Also in May, the permafrost that melted at the bottom of the tank caused a “huge” diesel to spill into the region, spilling into the Arctic Ocean.

Last month, dramatic fluctuations in temperatures in northwestern Siberia would occur once every 100,000 years if it weren’t for climate change, says climate scientist Martin Stendel. Said.

Intense Arctic warming

Through a process known as the Arctic expansion, the planet is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet.

The Arctic ice has accelerated to melt, which leads to seasonal snow cover that is not white and absorbs more sunlight, leading to further warming, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

It is also significant for the whole world. The melting of Arctic ice leads to higher sea levels, not just the Arctic Ocean. The world’s oceans will warm up to reflect sunlight with a few sections of ice

Plus, NOAA’s 2019 Artic Report Card It has been found that the flowing permafrost of the Arctic can emit 600 million tons of net carbon into the atmosphere every year.
