Temperatures in Moscow Set to Rise, Weather Bureau Says

Temperatures in Moscow are expected to rise between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius on Friday and will continue rising throughout the weekend, the weather bureau said.

On Thursday, temperatures dropped to minus 12 C in the capital and as low as minus 19 C in the Moscow region, but will rise to about 6 C on Friday, a spokesperson for the city and regional weather bureau said, Interfax reported.

The warmer weather will be accompanied by gusts of wind, the spokesperson added.

Temperatures will continue to rise over the weekend and early next week, reaching up to 15 C on Monday, the weather bureau said.

After an unusually warm winter in Moscow, temperature records were broken at least three days in a row earlier this month, with the thermometer climbing to 13.5 C last week before another cold spell set it.

… 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.
