Freezing poses a risk in the southern European territory.
In the Krasnodar region and Adygea on the nights of 13 and 14 March the ground froze and air temperatures dropped to -1, -2 degrees. The freeze poses a risk to early blossoming apricots and plums.
Morning frost could also endanger emerging winter wheat seedlings.
Continued cooling is forecast for 15 and 16 March in the south of Russia in the Krasnodar Region. On March 15 temperatures are expected to drop to -3 degrees, and on Wednesday -4 degrees is possible in Adygea.
