Winter has not yet begun, but in Oymyakon the temperature last night fell to -54.1°C (-65°F).
According to TASS in Oymyakonsky district, classes in schools were canceled from the 1st to the 5th grade, but older students all went to classes. In the Oymyakonsky district, students of lower grades do not attend school if the temperature drops to -52°C or lower.
One of the negative features of the cold is the formation of thick frost fogs in populated areas, which hamper visability. Visibility near the Yakut airport in the last hours dropped to 200 m. Such fogs are very dangerous for aviation, causing cancellations of flights.
Russian winter “twists the nuts”: minus 54!
