ABSTRACT. - Climatic consideration of the autumn of 2015 in the south-west of Romania. In the south-west of Romania, in the autumn of 2015 climate evolution in Oltenia was atypical. Therefore, July and August were canicular and droughty, and the summer canicula continued until 5th September, thus confirming the summer translation towards autumn. September and October were excessively rainy and the secondary pluviometric maximum was thus registered. The highest monthly quantities of precipitation were registered in September and often exceeded 100 l/m2, and their maximum value was registered in the area of the Subcarpathian Depressions, as well as in October in Apa Neagră. The autumn of 2015 marked a new oscillation of Oltenia climate, from a droughty and canicular weather to a rainy weather. The analysis of the climatic conditions in the south-west of Romania in the autumn of 2015 is a continuation of some extended studies on climate variability (Bogdan, Marinică & Marinică, 2014; Marinică & Marinică, 2014). The paper is useful to specialists, doctoral candidates and master graduates and to all people interested in the climate’s evolution.
Key words: pouring rains, ground excess of humidity, canicula, drought.
