"The climate has been warming in recent decades," said Umayra Tagiyeva, the head of the National Hydrometeorological Service under the Ministry of Ecology & Natural Resources, APA reports.

She noted that warming in the country is uneven: “In some regions, the indicators are higher, for example, by 1.4 degrees, and in some regions by 0.8 degrees. As you can see, as a result of warming, the number of frosty days in the winter months has decreased significantly. If a decrease is observed, then the precipitation is no longer in the form of snow, but in the form of rain. There is also a decrease in precipitation. This problem is observed not only in Azerbaijan but also in many countries, it is a manifestation of climate change. "
