Anomalously cold weather – Temperature below the norm by 4-8 degrees.
19 Apr 2017 – Snow fell in some regions last night and cold records were broken.
While in the Asian parts of Russia spring is in full swing, even ahead of schedule, in the European part of Russia and in Europe the temperature does not reach 4-6 Degrees.
The reason is that the Atlantic cyclones have chosen a southern route. And along the atmospheric fronts are not only rains, but also snow! Snow on the eve fell in the Volga and in the Black Earth. In fact, a number of European countries were covered in snow, even Germany.
Cold records broken
In Russia, the weather records updated Smolensk (where the air cooled to -6.8 degrees) and Tula (-6.5)!
The neighbors scored Vilnius (-5.8), Mogilev (-5.7), Bobruisk (-6.8) and Ivano-Frankivsk (-4.8).
The cold will continue for several days. Below-zero temperatures during the night hours are expected in most of Europe (from the Urals to the Pyrenees) all week!
In some places (mainly in mountainous areas) it can reach -10 degrees! Yes, and in the daytime in Central and Eastern Europe will not be above +5 degrees.
Spring is still delayed!
