This week, snow will fall in the capital, and the air temperature will drop to negative values not only at night, but also during the day, the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia reported. “Evening Moscow” found out what surprises to expect from the weather.
Wednesday will bring a cold snap: during the day the thermometer will not exceed 2 degrees Celsius, and at night it will drop to 3 degrees below zero.
— On Wednesday the weather will be determined by an anticyclone of northern origin. Therefore, at night it will be cloudy with clearings, and during the day it will be partly cloudy. No precipitation is expected during the day,” says Tatyana Pozdnyakova, chief specialist of the capital’s Meteorological Bureau. — Next, on Thursday, a cyclone will approach from the west. The pressure will begin to drop.
Not much precipitation is possible, an expert told Vechernaya Moskva. In addition, wet snow will be mixed with the rain. The air temperature during the day will be from 0 to –5.
Over the next 24 hours, atmospheric pressure will continue to decrease. Friday cloudy with light snow. In addition, on this day there will be quite strong winds – about 12-14 meters per second.
“The same weather is expected on Saturday,” says the chief specialist of the capital’s Meteorological Bureau. — Temperature at night is 0…–5, daytime temperature in the region is about 0 degrees.
On Sunday it will warm up to +5 degrees, there will be short-term rains. The weather we can now observe is characteristic of a special period – pre-winter.
Scientific Director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia Roman Vilfand says that the pre-winter period is one of the six natural synoptic seasons.
— Weather forecasters have six seasons, not four. These are winter, spring, first half of summer, second half of summer, autumn and pre-winter. Thus, the pre-winter period begins in mid-October, usually from October 15 to 25, and ends around December 15–20, after which the winter season begins, says the meteorologist.
