The first snowfall of June


June 3, 2017 by AK

Searching YouTube and Google images for snow in Moscow “June 2” (in Russian) and the Russian #weathergonemad tag on Instagram should turn up enough results to give one an idea of yesterday’s snowfall in Central Russia. A chance event is not a valid argument against a theory based on long-term trends and averages. The fact that the snow came in October and failed to melt at once but stayed until March or even April, and that there were snowfalls in mid-May and in early June, is not yet serious evidence that the global warming is not happening. Nevertheless, there’s an eerie, end-of-times feel to these atmospheric oddities – the summer snow, the freak winds in Moscow, the tornadoes in Tatarstan.
