European part of Russia was in the grip of severe frosts. That night, in Arkhangelsk, the temperature had fallen to minus 50 degrees. In Yaroslavl minus 30, in the capital of minus 27 and counting. MOE warns that in the night of 7 to 8 January, temperatures in Moscow can drop to minus 35 degrees.
Forecasters call this weather Arctic invasion. The whole European part of Russia literally burst icy air, transfers “TV Center”.
For Muscovites last night was the coldest this winter. A day in the street — minus 26. Although stiff gusts of wind seem even colder. But abnormal weather like this in January is of course impossible. Almost the same was Christmas in 2002, but a record low temperature on Christmas Eve was recorded in far 1891 – minus 35.
Minus 42 is now in Archangelsk and Nizhnevartovsk. In the minus 34 Vologda, Kostroma and Yaroslavl 29 below zero. On the streets of Moscow quite deserted as many have decided to just wait out the cold at home in the warmth. But those who decided to leave home and to sit behind the wheel, ran into unexpected difficulties. Many cars simply wouldn’t start. Maybe the best on the roads strong ice.
For drivers MOE expands the heating. For example, New Moscow, each of them expanded to 400 square meters, they put buses, snowmobiles, trucks and a field kitchen. In General, freezing does not let anyone. Warm a small tent standing and all main sites of the capital, which are folk festivals.
