Storms and blizzards in Morocco
On Friday, March 5, in some provinces of the Kingdom of Morocco there will be heavy thunderstorms and snowfalls. The orange level of meteorological risk is defined in the cities of Essaouira, Safi, Casablanca and El Jadida.
Heavy showers (up to 70 mm), accompanied by winds of up to 20 m / s, will also pass in the Tangier-Tetouan-El-Hoceima region, located in the north of the country.
In the mountains of the Marrakech-Safi region, precipitation is also expected – up to 30 cm of snow per day on slopes above 1500 m.
Coldest month in Russia in last 9 years
Not just December, not just January, not just February, but coldest month.
February 2021 was the coldest month of the past 9 years, said the scientific director of the Russian Hydrometeorological Center in an online conference held this Thursday at TASS. In addition, the average monthly temperature fell below normal for the first time during this period.
For almost a decade, the last winter months have been either hot or very hot, notes Roman Vilfand. And this year will be remembered for its frost and snow abundance. From the western border to Yakutia, the temperature was 4 to 6 degrees below normal. The February anomaly allowed the entire winter to fall into the “cold” category.
And winter does not give up.
Although it is already March, the frosts are getting stronger again. In the Central region this weekend the temperature can drop to -18°C.
