Spring has exploded in blizzards in Moscow and the Moscow region

March will be colder than January.

The winter in Moscow “broke out” with the snowfall

Spring has arrived according to the calendar, but instead has exploded in blizzards in Moscow and the Moscow region.

In VDNKh, at 9 am on March 7, the height of the snow was exactly 40 cm, and on the morning of March 8, it increased to 48 cm. The height of the snow increased more visibly in the area of Tushino: there the snow piles increased by 10 cm. The weather station with the same name is 55 cm.

The coldest day of winter awaits Moscow (March 8th)

An ultrapolar invasion awaits Moscow.

It’s spring on the calendar, but midweek Moscow will apparently be the coldest day of the winter season.

According to preliminary forecasts, the deviation from the average daily temperature of the norm in Moscow will be 12 degrees or more.

Surprisingly, March frosts will beat January frosts by 3 degrees at once!

  1. Off Topic but of note –
    Unseasonable cold in Kashmir, yes it is in the mountains but the temperatures are well below usual.

    From https://kashmirobserver.net/2021/03/08/snowfall-in-higher-reaches-rains-lash-plains-of-kashmir-3/
    “A Meteorological (MeT) Department official said Srinagar recorded a maximum of 6.6 degrees Celsius, a departure of 7.6 degrees from 14.2 degrees Celsius expected at this time of the year.
    Other weather stations also recorded a drop of four to six degrees in maximum temperature, the official said.
    Qazigund recorded a low of 4.8 degrees Celsius against 4.3 degrees Celsius on the previous night and received 1.4mm of rain during the time. The mercury settled at minus 1.4 degrees Celsius against 3.2 degrees Celsius on the earlier night at Pahalgam while the famous resort received 0.6mm rain.”

  2. Two and a half weeks before “Spring on the calendar”, our North Jersey Shore records near-record highs of 58 degrees Fahrenheit (!) while overseas venues remain clamped in Arctic chill.

    As honest records show, the 12,550-year Holocene Interglacial Epoch that began c. 14,400 YBP ended in AD 1350, coincident with Kamchatka’s strato-volcano Kambalny Eruption, a 70-year Grand Solar Minimum, and a 500-year Little Ice Age through 1850/1890.

    Following a 140-year “amplitude compression” rebound through 2030, a probable eight-cycle (88 year) Super-Grand Solar Minimum through 2108 is this cyclical, 102-kiloyear Pleistocene glaciation’s next inflection-point. Quite soon on geological time-scales, some 60% of Earth’s habitable landmasses will lie under continental ice-sheets two miles thick.

    Climaxing the 70-year Maunder Minimum from 1695 – ’98, two-thirds of northern populations from Scotland to the Polar Urals perished of famine and disease. In numbers, those casualties were small; but in today’s world, comparable proportions would extirpate 5.2 billion human souls.

  3. Today in the Southern sector of the Moscow Region we have had about -15C as minimal temperature, – quite low for March. The weather experts are concerned that proper westerly flow has not re-established itself over Europe for more than two months. Some of them say, that we wintess a fundamentally new weather pattern with meridional movements of cyclones.
