Cold records shattered in Moscow – ‘Dangerous for gardeners’

“August frosts, it’s dangerous!” reads the headline.

On the night of August 5 the air temperature in the metropolitan area decreased in some places to record values. In Cherusti, in the east of Moscow region, the minimum air temperature was +1.9°C, and in the herbage was -2°C.

Cold record shattered

Thus, for this area a new minimum temperature record was set. Prior to that, it belonged to the years 2001 and 2002 and was +4.9°C.

Coldest nights of the first five days of August in 60 years!

In Moscow, the minimum temperature at VDNH was +6.7°C. This is the lowest temperature not only in the summer of 2019, but also the coldest night of the first five days of August in the last 60 years!

Frosts in the herbage were noted in the vicinity of Murom.

And it is dangerous for gardeners!

  1. What happens to drug addicts when food prices shoot up? Sources of cash are going to dry up. What about opium poppy fields in Afghanistan and coca fields in Colombia? Will drug lords discover they can make more money growing beans and corn? Or will the military of diverse govts take that land over to grow food?

    No matter how you look at it, drug supplies will probably fall along with food supplies. People will be fighting in the streets because they are going through withdrawal. Sooo…welcome to the Zombie Apocalypse.

    This might be a good time to move someplace where there are no streets.

  4. Only records of the cold! ‘Meteonovosti’

    Not a single heat record has been observed in Russia over the past 24 hours, but cold records do not leave its territory. So last night absolute temperature minimums in Vyborg of the Leningrad Region were “beaten”, where the temperature dropped to 5.8°C (the previous record was 7.9°C in 1948); the temperature in the Pushkin mountains of the Pskov region dropped to 7.0°C, (the previous record was 7.6°C in 1976); in the city of Sukhinichi, Kaluga Region, the temperature dropped to 9.1°C (the previous minimum of 9.2°C was observed in 1968); in the city of Elton, Volgograd and in the city of Upper Baskunchak, Astrakhan Region, the temperature dropped to 9.3°C and 9.9°C, respectively (previous records of 11.5°C and 11.6°C were in 1994); in the city of Tsimlyansk, Rostov Region, the temperature did not reach 0.3°C to the 1969 record, when it was 11.3°C. The cold night was in the Irkutsk region, Trans-Baikal Territory and Buryatia. So in Orling, Irkutsk Region, the temperature dropped to 3.8°C (the previous record of 4.5°C was noted in 2002); in Romanovka (Buryatia), the minimum temperature reached 1.3°C (the previous record was 1.4°C in 1947); and in Transbaikalia (Chary), the thermometer column dropped to -1.4°C (in 1943 it was 0.0 degrees).
