First snow in Norilsk

September 28, 2020

This year the townspeople saw it much later than last year.

The day before, the residents of Norilsk shared photos of the first snow on social networks. A white blanket covered the area and the highway.

“Winter is coming”, users write on social networks and share pictures of snow-covered streets, highways, mountaintops and lawns.

It snowed in Kayerkan the day before, but the residents of the central part and Talnah did see a full snowfall. In the city, however, ‘white flies’ flew, but they melted immediately as soon as they met the ground.

In 2019, the townspeople recorded the first snow much earlier – on September 10. Moreover, bad weather hit the city, forcing the students to stay at home, and the airport – to delay several flights.

Today it is about +2 degrees in Norilsk. According to Gismeteo forecasts, the week will be snowy: daily precipitation is promised. In addition, it will become much colder – the week will end with subzero temperatures both at night and during the day.

But this fall is a sin to complain at: it was warm, with a short, but real Indian summer. And summer 2020 in the North was the hottest on record.
