  1. Today we have another wave of cold with strong northern wind and drizzle and temperature about 12C, while usually we had well above 20C at the end of May in the past few decades.

  2. This record cold in Moscow is even more spectacular considering the fact that Moscow has grown enormously in all those years.
    This means that city temperatures should have been rising because of the UHI effect. Instead they have fallen.
