Moscow Temperature to Hit Record High and Then Fall to Minus 6

Moscow's temperature will take the city on a roller-coaster ride this week, hitting its seventh record high of the month on Tuesday before diving below freezing by Wednesday night, weather forecasters said.

The city temperature was expected to reach a high of 17 degrees Celsius on Tuesday, passing the previous record of 14.3 C set on March 25, 2008, the Moscow weather bureau said, Interfax reported.

Since the beginning of the month, the temperature has hit record highs on six days — March 8, 9, 10, 22, 23 and 24. On Monday, the temperature reached 18.8 C in parts of the city.

But don't hang up your coats quite yet. The weather will cool down from Wednesday, dropping below zero on Wednesday night and then falling to minus 6 C on Thursday night, the weather bureau said.

… 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.
