It’s possible that it will bring two records at once.
Frosts are approaching a record. In the east of the region, last night it was -27.7°C, and in the center of Moscow, protected from the cold by pairs of heating plants, only -16.5°C.
The first possible record is the amount of snow. Since February 12, 1973 there has been 7.4 mm of precipitation, and on Friday we expect at least 10-15 mm or 15 to 20 cm of snow.
The second is the height of the snow cover. It could approach 1999 records, when in Moscow, according to observations, there were 58 to 61 cm of snow. Now the capital is about 35 centimeters.
Severe frost in Moscow to be replaced by record blizzard
On Tuesday, February 9, it will be cold in the capital, at night around -25°C, and during the day it will be -15°C, which is 10-11 degrees below normal.
And on Friday, February 12, a real winter storm will arrive in Moscow, with snow, blizzards and snow on the roads.
Heavy snow will fall throughout Friday, a record amount of precipitation will fall on cities each day.
