Russian Winter to Come to Moscow Late November, Forecasters Say

Russian winter will come to Moscow at the end of November.

Muscovites should be able to make the most of a warm spell in the capital this weekend, but have been warned by forecasters that winter is on the horizon.

A forecaster from the regional weather bureau told the Regnum news agency on Thursday that Muscovites would have up until the end of November before the long Russian winter sets in.

In the meantime, residents of the capital can cast aside their warmer clothes with the weather set to improve to mid-September levels.

Temperatures are expected to rise from between 10-14 degrees Celsius on Friday to up to 17 C over the weekend, the forecaster was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency, predicting rain for some parts of northern Moscow.

Temperatures will be back to normal by next week, dropping to as low as 8 C by next Tuesday, the report said.
