The weather forecast for Yakutsk shows tropical-like weather for the upcoming weeks. Most people don't know that Siberia can get hot and its summer heat is severe enough to rival the winter cold. I remembered last year Oymyakon soared to 106F during a heat wave. The July average last year for yakutsk was 83F, pretty shocking for such a cold subarctic climate.

I just have to laugh at the headline. Yakutsk's summers are far from tropical, but Siberia is balmy in the summer to say the least, and can get pretty hot

Many parts of AK managed to get colder last January without the unfair help from the Siberian High.

So a few days at +34C (with a much lower average) is as severe as -60C and a whole winter of averages under -30C?

But then again, Yakutsk is not even the coldest place in its neighborhood. Want cold? Go to Verkhoyansk or Omyakon or some of those tiny villages in the region.

Yakutsk is an actual city, nearly the same size as Anchorage. The population of Bettles is literally 12 (twelve) people according to 2010 census. Not 12,000 people - just 12, without any zeros.

It doesn't matter if there is a population at all, since we are referencing geography, not demographics. The lack of crowded urban centers in subarctic regions of North America only substantiates an embarrassing fact that Americans are wimpy and inferior to Russians when it comes to cold adaptation. If Bettles' small population bothers you that much, why don't you move yourself and your family there and start breeding.

Conclusive proof that the majority of the global population likes polar climates as evidenced by these population figures.
