Weather conditions. Air temperatures in Romania are still above their long-term normal levels (6..9°С). The average daytime air temperature varied within +16..+28°С. In the south, the thermometers showed +35°С on September 3.

Moisture content. This past week, little precipitation was seen in the northeastern and central regions (5-15 mm over the week). Soil drought spread all over the country’s farming areas that is an unfavorable factor for planting winter crops.
