YEREVAN, MARCH 23, ARMENPRESS. Dangerously powerful winds are expected in Armenia after midday March 24 until midday March 25, Gagik Surenyan, director of the Meteorological Center of the Hydromet Service told a press briefing.
In his words, an atmospheric front will form on Armenia as a result of cold air currents on the Black Sea and the warm air currents in the country.
The wind speed can reach 30-35 m/s in Shirak, Lori, Tavush, Gegharkunik, Syunik and Artsakh, he said.
