This September in Lithuania was the coldest since 2000

According to available data, the average September air temperature in Vilnius reached +10.3 °C, and in Klaipėda +12.2 °C, respectively 2.3 and 2 degrees colder than in 1991-2020. the average.

In the graphs provided by the meteorologists, it can be seen that it was cold for almost the whole month. The first half of the month was especially cold, when very early frosts were recorded and even the record of cold on September 7 was recorded. That night, the air temperature in Varėna dropped to -1.3 degrees. The previous record was improved by as much as 0.8 degrees.

In both the capital and the port city, even 28 days (out of 30) were colder than the long-term average. Warmer and near-normal days occurred only on September 14-20. period.

In both the capital and the port city, even 28 days (out of 30) were colder than the long-term average.

Meanwhile, the amount of precipitation in September (as in August) was once again very unevenly distributed. The difference in rainfall, e.g. between Nida and Šakii, (distance in a straight line – 135 km) reached almost 9 times.

Such contrasting conditions were created due to frequent isolated rains that moved mainly only through Western Lithuania. As such rain clouds moved deep into the continent, they quickly dissipated and did not reach the greater part of the country.

As can be seen in the graphs, it rained more in Klaipėda. 40.5 mm fell in the capital (this is about 71 percent of the monthly norm), and in the port city – 86.7 mm (about 110 percent). Thus, the September precipitation norm was reached only in Klaipėda.

Meteorologists also tried to calculate how many days there were when the temperature was 20 degrees or more, but they quickly saw that the weather warmed up to that point only in isolated areas of the country (Druskininkai, Birštonas, Akmenė, Klaipėda) and only for a few days, so the bar had to be lowered. even up to 18 degrees.

In the north-eastern regions of the country, there was not a single day when the air temperature reached 18 °C during the whole of September.

All in all, it turned out that in the north-eastern regions of the country there was not a single day when the air temperature reached 18 °C during the whole of September. Meanwhile, the most such days were observed in Southwest Lithuania.

Meteorologists predict that the weather will warm up to 15-19 degrees on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. A bobsleigh summer situation will develop, but it will be windy.
