MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. A powerful North-Atlantic cyclone is bound to bring an abrupt change of weather to Central Russia — a group of regions around Moscow — over the weekend and to end a long spell of warmth, which has broken many records since the middle of December.
Low atmospheric pressure will be accompanied by strong enough winds. The air temperatures will decrease gradually to the readings below zero Celsius, thus creating potential problems on the roads where thick icing may form.
The situation will likely improve by the middle of next week when steady temperatures of several degrees below zero set in. The cold will become milder by the end of the week and the temperature will return to the norm.
Over the coming weekend, rain gradually transforming into snow is expected practically everywhere in the Central Federal district. Aggregation of sleet on overhead electric cables and icing of the roads and pedestrian pathways is possible.
Gulps of wind will likely reach 15 to 20 meters per second and will be accompanied by blizzards in some places. An especially heavy snowfall amid consistently descending temperatures is expected in the Yaroslavl region Saturday, as well as in the Tver region overnight to and in the small hours of Sunday.
Most parts of the Central Federal District will be cloudy and snowy Sunday afternoon and the wind will be blowing at 13 to 18 meters per second.
The most typical temperature bracket will be minus 3 to 3 degrees Celsius Saturday and will go down 2 to 4 degrees.
By the beginning of next week, the air will cool off by another 5 to 10 degrees beginning with the northwestern areas of the region. Severe icing on the roads is expected everywhere throughout the district, as the temperatures sink below zero.
Monday is expected to be snowy with the thermometers showing minus 2 degrees. Gulps of wind will be reaching 15 meter per second.
A sharp plummeting of temperatures to minus 15 to minus 8 degrees in the night hours and minus 12 to minus 5 degrees during the daytime will take place Tuesday.
As of Wednesday, daytime temperatures will mostly stay in the range of minus 14 to minus 7 and nighttime temperatures will be three degrees lower on the average.
