Snow in Moscow will gradually melt and freeze from Monday to Wednesday, from October 31 to November 2. Ice will remain on the capital’s roads until the middle of the week. This was warned by the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia Roman Vilfand.

“Starting from the afternoon on Wednesday no sleet is predicted,” the meteorologist said. About this on October 31 writes RIA News. According to him, precipitation contributes to the formation of ice on the roads. In the afternoon of November 2, the weather will be determined by the eastern periphery of the anticyclone. Precipitation is not predicted, Vilfand specified.

The meteorologist drew attention to the fact that ice persists even at positive temperatures. If there were slight frosts at night, and in the daytime the thermometer rose above zero, then with a strong wind, icing of road sections occurs, Vilfand explained.

Because of the ice, Moscow motorists recommended to change winter tires. The Metropolitan Department of Transport explained that driving on summer tires in such weather conditions is dangerous and fraught with an accident.
