This article offers comparative analysis of the thermal regime figures from 1986 to 2005, and outlines expectations for their change, calculated for the territory of Ukraine, 2011-2050, in accordance with three scenarios of climate change: GFDL-30%, A1B, and A2. Among these expectations are earlier dates for air temperatures transitioning between ranges in the spring, as well as later dates in the fall, general increase in mean air temperatures, growth in temperature sums, and changes in temperature amplitudes.
