– 130 year record low in Vladivostok (Ice Age now, Oct 2, 2014):
Earlier than normal snowfall in the Perm region.
2 Oct 2014 – Snowfall in early October in the Perm area “is not the norm for the region,” said Andrew Shikhova, of the Regional Center for Geographic Information Systems.
Another record was broken in Vladivostok, which registered the lowest absolute minimum air temperature in more than 130-year history of weather observations.
Tuesday morning in the seaside capital was only plus one degree Celsius.
This broke the previous record low of 4.3 degrees set on 30 September 1968, according to Tass.
Last week saw the first snow in the Krasnodar Territory, where total snowfall in Krasnaya Polyana reached 7 cm.
That doesn’t seem like much, but “the real winter in the mountains of Sochi usually comes in December.”
