First snow falls in Norilsk

First snow falls in Norilsk

Snowfall in mid-September is not an anomaly for the Arctic.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The first snow in mid-September for the Arctic is not an anomaly, but a normal natural phenomenon. In previous years, before significant climate change, it even fell much earlier – in the first days of the month. However, inexperienced guests of the city run to take pictures of it with surprise and even some joy.

Many say that they have heard before about the quirks of northern nature, but the morning snow still came as a surprise to them. However, as well as for the indigenous Norilsk residents, who hoped that the Indian summer was still going on. And they were wrong.

Both of them turned out to be wrong, because by lunchtime the snow had melted. The rain now periodically alternates with snowfall, and the roads are a mess of water and snow and knee-deep puddles. Stable snow cover will come with the first frosts.

Now in the city it is plus 1–2 degrees, the wind is east-southeast 5 meters per second. And in the waters of the Norilskaya river, lakes Melkoye, Glubokoye and Lama it is stormy, so it is undesirable for small vessels to enter the reservoirs.

Let us remind you that last year the first snow in Norilsk fell on September 22.
