Temperature Records Broken in Moscow in Each of Last 3 Days

Muscovites were able to make the most of the International Women's Day celebrations over the weekend as unseasonably warm weather hit Russia's capital city.

High temperature records were broken three days in row in Moscow, with the thermometer climbing to 13.6 degrees Celsius on Monday, the weather bureau said, Itar-Tass reported Tuesday.

The warm spell looks set to come to an end Tuesday evening, however, with a cold front blowing in from the northwest. The bureau predicts that temperatures will drop to between 1 and 3 degrees Celsius overnight, while rain is also expected.

Temperatures will settle between 5 and 7 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, which could also see some light rainfall in Moscow.

The warm start to March looks set to cap an unusually mild winter in Moscow.

In mid-February, the bureau said that only 110 centimeters of snow had fallen in the city over winter, compared to 222 centimeters at the same point in the previous year.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
