It is late August, but apple trees are blooming again in Kokshetau city of northern Kazakhstan, Tengrinews reports citing Interfax-Kazakhstan agency.

According to Raushan Kalmanbayeva, a weatherperson of the regional branch of KazHydromet, Kazakhstan’s national weather service, the fruit trees started blossoming off time because the weather had been unusually hot in the area for some time.

"The day before, for example, Zhaltyr station in Astrakhan region in Akmola Oblast registered the air temperature of +40 degrees Centigrade. It was +29 degrees Centigrade in Kokshetau, and the average for the region was at +39 degrees Centigrade. This heat wave came with air masses from the Mediterranean Sea. Such uncommonly high temperature at this time of the year was last registered in the region 5 or 6 years ago," Raushan Kalmanbayeva said.

A decrease in air temperature is expected starting his week, even as far as windchill and ground frost of 0-2 degrees Centigrade in Akmola Oblast. But the air temperature will go back to + 33 degrees Centigrade in the end of the month.

Even in spite of this, however, these is absolutely no chance for the Kokshetau apple trees to bear fruits for the second time this year.
