Winter refuses to give in to spring.

Snow covered St. Petersburg in just a few hours.

Low visibility and snow-covered roads led to numerous car accidents and led to interruptions in operations at Pulkovo Airport.

On St. Petersburg roads “accidents multiply like mushrooms,” users write.

  1. I think this will contibute to some late frosts and freezes to the east coast come April and May due to the cold water modify the air temperature lower even after the melt so it won’t surprise me if we get some late cold spells with late freezes and frosts this spring that run into May even for the southern mountains!

  2. 2019 Saw The Coldest February In Four Decades
    Wednesday, 06 March 2019 Did you find February to be colder than usual? That’s because it was one of the coldest Februarys on record for many locations in Southern Manitoba. That’s according to Environment and Climate Change Canada, which says the average temperature throughout the month was:

    Carman -20.6

    Gretna -20.2

    Emerson -19.9

    Morden -18.9

    Meteorologist Natalie Hasell explains we were under a lot of arctic air that month, and there were two possibilities.

    “We got stronger winds, blowing snow and reduced visibility,” says Hasell. “Either a system like that was just leaving the area, and then the cold air was being brought back into Southern Manitoba by the circulation around that low, or the ridge that builds when cold air is brought down from the north just sat over us and didn’t move all that much. So we were stuck in the pool of cold air.”
    She says the arctic air really started coming into the area mid-January, which is why this winter has felt colder than usual.

  3. We still have snow on the ground in Barrie,Ontario and even though it will be officially spring in a few weeks I am expecting winter like conditions beyond that. Everyone I run into is sick of winter and is expecting an end to winter ASAP. I expect they will be disappointed in April and will be praying for global warming in May… Deliverance by the Victoria day long week end if they are lucky. We will see.

  4. CO ski country, but still “historic” getting used often …

    State officials catapulted their gauge of avalanche danger to the highest level after Colorado notched 2,000 avalanches so far this season, and a series of avalanches swept over Interstate 70 near Vail and ruptured a natural gas line in Copper Mountain on Thursday.

    Some of the recent avalanches were really big, some reaching historic levels. Tuesday, both natural and explosive triggered avalanches reached D3 to D4 in size. The Disney slide path above Highway 40, as just one example, hasn’t run this big since 1957. The D4 avalanche out of Bethel on the east side of the Eisenhower Tunnel crossed all 4 lanes of I-70 with debris 6 to 15 feet deep for a 300 foot long stretch of road.

  5. Sub-zero highs as far south as the Midwest United States this week and these people are publishing articles like this https://www.bbc.com/news/amp/science-environment-47485847
    Notice that their data set abruptly ends in 2012. Cherry-picking data much? What about the last seven years in which we’ve seen record breaking freezing temperatures and frozen precipitation in subtropical zones over some of the winters?

  6. How about this? Stupidest thing I ever heard of..
    Adults won’t take climate change seriously. So we, the youth, are forced to strike.We, the youth of America, are fed up with decades of inaction on climate change. On Friday, March 15, young people like us across the United States will strike from school. We strike to bring attention to the millions of our generation who will most suffer the consequences of increased global temperatures, rising seas, and extreme weather. But this isn’t a message only to America. It’s a message from the world, to the world, as students in dozens of countries on every continent will be striking together for the first time. https://thebulletin.org/2019/03/adults-wont-take-climate-change-seriously-so-we-the-youth-are-forced-to-strike/
