Russia – Snow paralyzes Ulan-Ude

In Ulan-Ude snowfall caused a surge in accidents and great congestion.

17 Oct 2016 – Citizens were not able to get to work and motorists staged huge queues at service stations in order to “change the shoes.” (I assume that means change from summer tires to snow tires.)

According to “Yandex,” traffic moved less than two kilometers per hour in particularly problematic areas.

  1. reckon my rain and hail day sure beats this weather;-)
    we are being warned about frosts again! over halfway into october in Aus in spring
    overnight temps have hardly been double figures at all yet;-(

  2. After a series of mild winters, the British Isles are at risk of crossing one of the most rigid and snowy winters of recent years.
    The NAO (North Atlantic Oscillation) should show up negative from the month of November, and for these islands lie ahead four months of forest climate with snow.

    “Snow is rare phenomenon..or not…and the earth is quickly heating. Hot…hot..and from where is the snow coming?
    AGW is a company that has many investors in the financial market or what?”

  3. capital city of the Republic of Buryatia, Russia; it is located about 100 kilometers (62 mi) southeast of Lake Baikal on the Uda River at its confluence with the Selenga in Eastern Siberial and 5,615 km east of Moscow. Winter is Nov-Jan. http://www.accuweather.com/en/ru/ulan-ude/287431/october-weather/287431 says by Saturday 10/22 it w/b 37F/13F ; HISTORICAL AVG: 39F/18F

    51.83 latitude and 107.61 longitude. About same latitude as London, Berlin, Calgary and is 1700 feet above sea level.

  4. Sorry, my last comment pertained to Ulan-Ude, Russia.

    A useful search term. Your City or wherever average temperature October

    Example: “Santa Maria, CA average temperature October” & choose Accuweather’s link.

    Here in Central Coast CA it shows that this part of the US vegetable basket w/b a whopping 20 degrees above average on 10/20, and was almost 30 degrees above average on 9/26. Santa Maria is prone to very brief hot spells “Santa Ana’s”.

    Nevertheless we had the coolest of my 7 Augusts here.

    At the bottom of the Accuweather link the graph helps you to compare both your hi’s & lo’s to the average for each month.

    However, all this data may be a bit skewed in favor of warming. I’ve seen many proofs of govt fraudulent reporting of the US temperatures (always upward for the present and downward for the past), but am looking for a simpler example to post on nonclimate sites. Anyone have a good link for me?
