Moscow Heatwave Continues

For a few weeks in 2010, Moscow was the global warming canary in the coal mine. For some reason they don’t talk about Moscow any more.

A large, early snowstorm raging in Moscow disrupted flights and created havoc on the roads on Thursday.

Yelena Temakina, chief of the forecast department at Moscow’s Meteorological Office, said 20 centimeters (8 inches) of snow had fallen in 24 hours. That is half of Moscow’s typical amount of snow for the whole of November.

Moscow’s City Hall said it expects the snowstorm, which is due to continue at least until Friday morning, to be the biggest in November in 50 years.

    Meanwhile in Estonia, and after a week of snowstorms, a fresh snowstorm arriving last Thursday and buried much of the country – with up to 10.5 inches (27 centimeters) more of fresh snow, according to the Meteorology and Hydrology Institute. Temperatures varied from -4 to -7 C on the mainland, with temperatures near freezing on Saaremaa.

    Estonia is close to Lapland (Finland) which could mean Santa may be delayed this year.
