Their average temperature will be 15-20 degrees above zero, and temperature will reach 9-14 degrees above zero at night. Monthly precipitation in the region is expected to be close to the norm (86-130 mm).

Average temperature of Gazakh, Ganja, Goranboy, Terter, Agdam, Fizuli, and Jabrail will be 21-25 degrees above zero, expected to reach 18-23 degrees above zero at night. Monthly precipitation in the region is expected to be lower than the norm (46-63 mm).

Average temperature in Azerbaijan's Balakan, Zagatala, Gakh, Sheki, Oguz, Gabala, Ismayilli, Agsu, Shamakha, Khizi, Guba, Gusar, and Khachmaz will be 19-23 degrees above zero, higher than the climatic norm; temperature is expected to drop to 15-20 degrees above zero at night. Monthly precipitation in the region is expected to be closer to the norm (18-179 mm).
