MOSCOW, March 22 (Itar-Tass) – A week before the end of the first calendar month of spring, winter will most likely send a reminder to Moscow City and the Moscow region Saturday night, suggesting that Russia is a northern country and that the snowy period of the year may last for up to five months here.
Moscow’s Deputy Mayor Pyotr Biryukov said at a meeting with the heads of emergency services Friday that the snowstorm may go on with variable degrees of intensity through to next Tuesday.
“We’re heading for a rather knotty situation in the next few days,” he said. “I mean air temperatures, in the first place, since frost may sink to minus 20 C to minus 17 C during nighttime.”
“This cold will be combined with a really heavy snowfall that will build up the thickness of snow cover by another 25 to 28 centimeters,” Biryukov said.
“Snowfall will begin Saturday night and will continue throughout Sunday, Monday and Tuesday,” he said.
Biryukov added that winters with as much snow as the western regions of Russia evidenced this time occur once in about sixty years.
