On the basis of long-term dynamics of the July’s vegetation data (NDVI and VCI indices) for 31 ranges of the Tien Shan and Jungarian Alatau arid mountains located in the Eurasia center are found the atmosphere stratification change. The variability of Atlantic Ocean water vapor transport ability over Northern Tien Shan ranges to the Inner Tien Shan was detected. This phenomenon not related to the overall seasonal humidity but is obviously associated with atmosphere stratification regimes. The analyzed period consists of two eras from 2002–2008 and 2008–2019 years, which differ in the regime of accessibility of the Inner Tien Shan ranges for water vapor from Atlantic Ocean. The overall tendency of the changes in 2002–2019 is the increase in the availability ocean water vapor to the Inner Tien Shan ranges. Recorded changes may be due to global air temperature increases and atmospheric processes intensification.
