The late meteorological summer in Kyiv has already brought two temperature records; actually, they were observed on the same day. The Central Geophysical Observatory named after Borys Sreznevsky reported that on June 11.
On June 10, the daily average air temperature made 26.3 degrees above zero by Celsius. That's 0.3 degrees higher than the previous temperature record for this day, which was observed in 1885. Besides, the night from June 10 on June 11 was the warmest one in 140 years. The temperature did not fall below the level of 20.6 degrees above zero. The previous record rate of 20.2 degrees was observed in 2019.
May 2020 appeared to be the coldest May month in the 21st century so far. At that, the rains in the Ukrainian capital beat the record that held for almost 130 years.
Meanwhile, Ukraine's hydrometeorological center forecasts more rains and thunderstorms that should replace the current wave of heat. On June 11, weather forecasters expect thunderstorms and hail in western regions of the country.
