BAKU, February 8 (Itar-Tass) — Unusually frosty weather is recorded in Azerbaijan.
On Wednesday night, the temperature was 14 degrees Celcius below zero, and weather experts say it is a record.
“Last time, heavy frosts were in Azerbaijan in 1969, but back then the temperature in Baku was only minus ten degrees,” the country’s meteorology service said. As for the weather in the regions, in some of them the temperature was as low as 20 degrees Celcius below zero.
The frosty weather came together with snow storms and strong wind. Ice-covered roads affect Baku’s public transport, though the maintenance services are doing everything in their power to clear the roads of snow. Because of the frosts, Baku’s international airport named after Geidar Aliyev delayed or cancelled several flights, including those to Moscow and St. Petersburg. A plane operating London-Baku flight had to make a landing in Tehran. However, the railroad and international busses work as usual.
