Winter has come in its own right throughout the vast territory of Russia. What is it bringing? Low temperatures, snow, snow cover are its main manifestations.

The territory of Russia is large and diverse in terms of physical and geographical conditions, so the frequency of these adverse weather conditions varies greatly in different regions. In Yakutia and Siberia, there are traditionally severe frosts, on the coast of the eastern and Arctic seas – strong winds and snowstorms. In the European part of the country, frosts that came from the Urals can be replaced by heavy snowfalls and thaws brought by western or southern cyclones.
