Forecast information of ice formation on rivers in 2018
Decrease of water level has prevailed on rivers in first and second decades of October. Small increase of water level due to precipitation marked in the third decade. Water content was lower than usual for this season. October was warm, average month temperature was 1-2ºС above climate normal, that is why average monthly turned out to be 1-2 ºС above climate normal for this season. Rivers’ water temperature stayed within 4,0ºС - 14ºС, in October water temperature in rivers didn’t decrease significantly. At the date of forecast release water temperature in rivers’ basins: Zapadnaya Dvina 2,8-6,6 ºС, Neman 7,0-9,8 ºС, Viliya 5,0-7,0 ºС, Western Bug 6,6-10 ºС, Dnieper 4,3-7,6 ºС, Berezina 5,0-7,6 ºС, Sozh 2,2-7,2 ºС, Pripyat 7,0-11 ºС. Appearance of ice formation is expected later than long – term periods: in the Zapadnaya Dvina, the Dnieper and the Sozh basins at the end of November – at the beginning of December; at the first decade of December in the Neman, the Vilija, the Berezina; in the Pripyat basin in the second decade of December. In the period of ice formation and due to ice jams, rough diurnal variations are possible on rivers. After the beginning of ice formation, cessation or partial damage of ice formation are possible on water objects after entering heat air masses on the territory of Belarus. It’s not excluded appearing of short-term ice formations in the second decade of November due to possible invasion of cold air masses on the territory of Belarus. Due to the weather fickle disposition and increased temperature regime, forecast of ice formations appearing on rivers will be specified after making long-term forecast for December.

The main areas of cooperation are: hydrometeorological security, information exchange, meteorological support of flights of civil aviation; long-term forecasts, global climate change, instruments and methods of measurement, active impacts on hydrometeorological processes, monitoring of environmental pollution, the activities of the observation network, agricultural meteorology, hydrology, frames, telecommunications and satellite information, storm warning and warning of natural phenomena; transboundary water and sediment transport. The Interstate Council for Hydrometeorology of the Commonwealth of Independent States working results: 1. April 16, 2004, the Heads of Government of the CIS Member approved the Concept of Hydrometeorological Safety of the CIS Member prepared by the Council for Hydrometeorology. The main aim of the Concept is the formation of an official view on the role and importance of ensuring hydrometeorological security as an integral part of the national security of each of the participating states. The main task is to ensure conditions that would contribute to the achievement of the necessary level and quality of the hydrometeorological support of the participating states, allowing to reduce the negative impact of dangerous hydrometeorological phenomena on the safety of life and property of people, as well as the functioning of the economies of countries. 2. On May 30, 2012, within the framework of the development of the provisions of the Concept, the Council of CIS Heads of Governments approved the Strategy for the development of hydrometeorological activities of the CIS members, which is an agreed set of interrelated tasks and directions for development, activities and stages of their implementation, mechanisms that effectively solve systemic problems in the activities of national hydrometeorological services of the CIS member states and achievement of the set goals. 3. The Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (SPA “Taifun” of Roshydromet) was established to provide the CIS countries with the necessary forecast information on the trajectory of pollutants during man-made accidents (including NPPs). 4. A unified scientific, methodological and technological base for production activities in the field of hydrometeorology and monitoring of environmental pollution in the territory of the participating states has been created and is constantly developing. 5. There is a constant exchange of scientific and practical literature published by the national hydrometeorological services of the CIS member states. 6. Unified requirements for the training of key specialists in the field of hydrometeorology and environmental pollution control have been developed and approved, and the procedure for internships, individual training and advanced training has been determined. 7. The CIS Interstate Hydrometeorological Network was formed.

Minsk hosted WMOs technical seminars on October 2-4, 2018
On October 2-4, 2018, on the eve of the 30th anniversary session of the Interstate Council for Hydrometeorology of the Commonwealth of Independent States, technical seminars on the World Meteorological Organizations’ Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) and the Aircraft Meteorological Data Relay (AMDAR) were held in Minsk. As part of the activities, there were meetings of the task forces of the Regional Association VI (RA VI) on WIGOS and on observations from aircraft. The meetings were attended by representatives of 18 states. The WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) is an integrated approach of improving global climate observing systems and their gradual development. Together with the WMO Information System (WIS), WIGOS is the basis for all member countries of the organization to ensure accurate, reliable and timely observational data and products in the field of weather, climate, water and associated environmental media. The AMDAR is a subsystem of the integrated global observing system, which is defined and maintained as part of the WMO World Weather Observation Program. The AMDAR system uses predominantly existing on-board sensors, computers and communication systems to collect, process, format and transmit meteorological data to ground stations. The collected data is used for a number of meteorological applications, including weather forecasting, climate monitoring, weather early warning systems, weather monitoring and forecasting in the aviation industry. State Hydrometeorological Services of WMO Members 24 hours a day and 7 days a week transmit important information about weather situations and climate change around the world. Timely and accurate warnings of changes in weather conditions and climate provide an opportunity to prepare in advance for the upcoming natural emergencies, to minimize their consequences for the community and the environment.
