Freezes in Russia ‘could destroy the crop’

In the south of Russia, spring is in full color. Gardens delight in white and pink. But alarming freezes could worsen or destroy the crop.

At night and in the morning of April 24, freezes persisted in the northern half of Volgograd and parts of the Astrakhan regions. In parts of the Rostov Region, Krasnodar Territory, and the republics of the North Caucasus the temperature dropped to -3.0°C. In the Stavropol Territory, it dropped to -1.0 …- 4.0°C.

The threat of freezing on Saturday still remains in the north of the Stavropol Territory, and from April 25-27 in the republics of the North Caucasus the temperature will drop in places to -1 ..- 5°C.
This whole week was cool and windy. In Moscow, wet snow and snow pellets were noted.

At the end of the week, the freezes returned. In Moscow, the temperature dropped to −2, in the region – to −6°C.

The average daily temperature will remain 2–4 degrees below the climatic norm. The temperature will be close to 0 at night, and during the day from +6 to +10°C.

Next week also will not become a springboard in the spring.
