The lowest temperatures of up to 52-53 degrees were reported in the Chukotka villages of Markovo and Omolon overnight, said the head of the Chukotka meteorological and environment monitoring department, Dmitry Kozelov.
Frosts of 30-40 degrees below zero remain in all the other residential sites on the peninsula.
