In Greenland, temperatures of 20 to 30 degrees above the average for this time of year were recorded in the previous days, and they were above zero in many places, the Danish Meteorological Institute announced.

In the capital Nuku on December 20, the temperature was 13 degrees, and at this time of year the average temperature is minus 5.3 degrees.

North of that, in Kwanaquo, the mercury climbed to 8.3 degrees, and it is common for this time minus 20.1 degrees, it is stated in the announcement.

It is pointed out that one of the reasons for the elevated temperatures is the meteorological phenomenon ‘fen’, a warm wind that blows quite frequently in Greenland.

During the summer, the heat wave with temperatures that were over ten degrees higher than usual caused a mass melting of the ice sheet in Greenland.

At that time, losses of eight billion tons of ice were recorded every day, which is twice as much as the average rhythm during the summer.

This year, on August 14, it rained at the top of the highest point in Greenland, waxing 3,216 meters, which had never happened before.
