Ulaanbaatar Mongolia Weather
Trees, a rare place in the steppe of Mongolia, line the streets of the city of Ulan-Bator. People load coal - cars loaded with coal into a truck as a cold wave hits the country on December 22, 2016.
The modern yurt was created just 50 years ago when a National Geographic article on Mongolia prominently featured traditional yurts, also known as ger, in Mongolia. Traditional dwellings are still a popular sight in many parts of the country, with a thousand-year history. Yurt is still widespread - throughout Mongolia - and is supported by a wide range of natural resources such as oil, coal, natural gas and wood. Asian border, a poorly defined internal Asian border in the Middle East and North Africa, and in Asia.
Tungalag and his team went door to door in a series of yurts in the Altai Mountains, the highest mountain range in Mongolia. Then there are three mountain ranges: Khangai Mountains are almost in the middle and further west, and Altai Mountains dominate the northern and western regions.
Summer nights in most parts of Mongolia are generally cool and sometimes even cold, but the days are pleasant. The best time to visit Mongolia is during the summer months when temperatures stay below freezing. However, the number of yurts at low altitudes of a thousand metres or less is not very large, and the best time to visit Mongolia, according to Tungalag, is the winter months, when temperatures can be several days above freezing.
Based on the tourism score, the best time to visit Ulan Bator for warm weather activities is from early July to mid-August. There are other options, such as a trip to Ulaanbaatar National Park, but based on these values, Tungalag says that the "best time" to visit ULAN Bators is during the winter months between the beginning of July and mid-August. According to our tourist results, the summer months are a good time to visit Ulandaat and the northern part of the country, especially the southern part, at the end of July or the beginning of August to the beginning of September.
The best time to visit Mongolia is May, when the days are warm and waterproof, although it rains even during this time.
It should be noted that cold weather in Mongolia is much better tolerated than dry air, so be prepared for sweat - sucking flies in summer.
Ulan Bator is the coldest capital city in the world and its average annual temperature is only 2 degrees Celsius colder than Moscow, which can enjoy a comparatively milder 5.5 degrees. Mongolia's weather has changed dramatically in recent decades: Mongolia's annual mean air temperature rose by 2.24 degrees C (three times the global average) between 1940 and 2015. But it's a tough winter: the average temperature in 2015 was 41.3 degrees below freezing, while the mercury once dropped to minus 86.8 degrees.
Previously, there may have been excessive winters every decade, but now they are more common, and deadly snowstorms occur in late spring. Snowstorms in Mongolia in May 2008 killed at least 21 people and more than 100 others were missing. The problem may only exist in Mongolia, but there are many countries with air pollution crises that have been as serious as Mongolia in recent years.
Because Mongolia is so far from the sea and relatively high, the weather there is characterized by high temperatures, high humidity and high air pollution. Siberian winds that can send temperatures plummeting and turn large parts of the country into snow.
Although there are occasional heavy snowstorms, snow falls in gusts and thunderstorms rather than storms. There is no heavy rainfall, and much of Mongolia is covered in mild summer temperatures.
In Ulan Bator summers are long and pleasant, winters cold and dry and it is partly cloudy all year round. The lowest temperature recorded in the city so far this year was 34 degrees on January 26, but weather forecasts predict temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees next week. Winter was relatively mild, residents say, with only a few days of heavy snowfall in January, February and March. In recent years, Mongolia has had relatively mild weather, according to the National Weather Service.
The storm warning, which has been issued for large parts of China and Mongolia, advises friends in the region to reduce their outdoor activities in those areas as much as possible.
Most people know Mongolia for its good seasonal weather, and that is true, but the weather makes it difficult for the people of Mongolia to continue their traditions. Mongolia is also known as the land of the eternal blue sky, with 260 sunny days a year. However, during the year the sky is covered with clouds and we experience significant seasonal variations.
The region is experiencing strong spring weather, which produces wind speeds of up to 60 km / h and gusts of up to 70 km / h for days on end.
