According to the National Meteorological Administration (ANM), in December, unusual temperatures for this month, of over 15-20 degrees Celsius, can be recorded, if in the area of our country tropical air masses enter, which produce spectacular increases of thermal values.
“The beginning of winter, December, is characterized by a wide range of meteorological phenomena: snow associated with wind intensifications causes the production of blizzard, a phenomenon that occurs most often in the Muntenia Plain, Dobrogea and eastern Moldova; persistent fog, especially in the plain areas and in depressions and less often, sleet and rain “, specify the NMA specialists.
“The ridge of the Eastern European anticyclone, which extends over southeastern Europe and, to some extent, the Mediterranean cyclones, will begin to have a special influence on our country.
