In Siberia, dozens of cities, towns, and villages get walloped with early snow

In Yakutia, the snow came earlier – with the first falls on 28-29 August, before the official end of summer.

But in western Siberia the first white blanket has now come to the cities of Omsk, Tomsk, Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, and Krasnoyarsk, as well as both Altai Republic and Altai region.

Drivers have been warned to take care across this large area.

The cold blast is in contrast to last year when the first snow in western Siberia came only in the first week of October.

So far the coldest temperature as the new winter approaches is around minus 5°C in Aldan, Neryungi, Aikhal, and Verkhoyansk – all in Yakutia region, officially the Sakha Republic.
