Moscow Temperatures to Drop Sharply in October

Muscovites can expect a cold snap and possibly even sleet by the end of the week as a cyclone blows through the region, gusting with it winds from the Arctic, forecasters have said.

State-run news agency RIA Novosti cited Russia's meteorological center as saying the cyclone would cause temperatures to drop sharply this week — to between 2-4 degrees Celsius overnight on Tuesday, with the possibility of sleet, and hovering about 5-7 C throughout Wednesday.

While temperatures are expected to climb to between 7-9 C on Thursday and 5-10 C on Friday, gusty winds and grey skies will be present for most of the week, forecasters added.

… 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.
