In Moscow, the weather is forecasted to be normal, 5 to 10 degrees below zero at night and 5 to 7 degrees below zero in the afternoon. However, in December frosts up to 15 - 20 degrees below zero are not excluded - these figures also fit into the norm.

In February it is colder than the norm expected in Moscow and regions south of the capital of Russia. In the north of the European part of Russia and the entire Asian part, the temperature is about or above normal.
March is expected to be warm throughout the European part of Russia, in Western Siberia, the Urals and Yakutia.
Soon, in October, Moscow expects 2 to 7 degrees of heat at night and 10 to 15 degrees of heat in the afternoon. "We can say with certainty that the temperature will be above the norm in the south of the European part of Russia, in Siberia and in the chernozem regions," Roman Vilfand told journalists. Comfortable temperature in the South of Russia can prolong the "velvet" season.
