Spring Weather Settles in Moscow, but Nights Remain Freezing

Temperatures in Moscow will continue to rise gradually and may top 13 degrees Celsius by the end of the week, weather forecasters said Wednesday.

Weather in recent days has been affected by a high-pressure system that caused a smattering of clouds and huge temperature differences throughout the day.

The temperature dropped to minus 5 degrees on Wednesday morning but was expected to rise to 8-9 degrees during the day, Interfax reported, citing a weather bureau official.

He said night temperatures would stay below freezing for the next few days and hover around freezing over the weekend.

The temperature is expected to reach 8-9 degrees on Thursday before warming up to 10-11 degrees on Friday and 13 degrees by Sunday.

The weather in and around Moscow is to stay mostly dry throughout the next week.
