Forecasts suggest we’re not in for a harsh winter

Present weather forecasts suggest Romania will not be faced with a harsh winter, the general director of the National Meteorology Administration, Ion Sandu, stated yesterday. “There may be times in December, January or February when temperatures may drop, but present forecasts indicate we won’t be having a harsh winter. (…) We’re not saying there won’t be instances of blizzard or days where temperatures may reach -30 degrees.

All we know is that, according to forecasts we have at the moment, there is no reason for people to panic,” Sandu expanded. According to the latter, in December the climatological normal will amount to -0.6 degrees and, in January, to -3.1 degrees. When asked to comment on temperatures at this time of the year, Ion Sandu argued there was nothing odd about them. “Temperatures reported in the past days are higher than average values, but statistically, temperatures of 20 degrees were often reported at this time of the year in Romania,” Sandu explained.
