Spare a thought for people in Russia. Its the coldest winter since 1938. Temperatures may hit -25 in Moscow this weekend. They have already hit -50C in Siberia. Twenty-one people froze to death in one day. (See the Telegraph photo gallery)

Down to -50C: Russians freeze to death as strongest-in-decades winter hits

Russian Times

Russia is enduring its harshest winter in over 70 years, with temperatures plunging as low as -50 degrees Celsius. Dozens of people have already died, and almost 150 have been hospitalized.

­The country has not witnessed such a long cold spell since 1938, meteorologists said, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees lower than the seasonal norm all over Russia.

Across the country, 45 people have died due to the cold, and 266 have been taken to hospitals. In total, 542 people were injured due to the freezing temperatures, RIA Novosti reported.

The Moscow region saw temperatures of -17 to -18 degrees Celsius on Wednesday.

Over the weekend, meteorologists predict temperatures will plunge even lower in the Moscow region, hitting -25. The Russian capital is also expected to be swept with snow, RIA Novosti reported.

Temperatures have been 7 degrees lower than the norm for five days already, which is considered an anomaly, according to the Meteonovosti.ru website

Apparently some Circus trainers thought it was a good idea to feed Vodka to their elephants and swear it saved them from the Siberian cold. Though doctors are warning that alcohol is a bad plan for people…

h/t William Happer (who is in Siberia) and Gordon Fulks who passed on the message. Darren Porter too. Thank you!

It’s suppose to be 70 degrees in Charleston, West Virginia this Saturday and Sunday, we might break a record. The Russians can keep their -50 degrees....

You don’t really have to go to Siberia to get minus 50 degress celsius. Mostly if you’re flying at >41,000 feet the temperature goes lower than that that you better be sure your anti ice working. :-)

Warmish here in Southern Michigan but nothing like last winter and a January warm spell is nothing unusual.

Soon the upper US States will experience similar conditions as that huge mass of super cold air moves down from the Arctic ocean.

-50C is -58F. We used to do that in the Dakotas and sometimes Maine. I’m pretty sure SAC thought the bombers needed the cold to run properly. Too bad they don’t have LL Bean in Siberia.

One can in the AccuWeather main page click on the "world" link at top left, then do a search say Moscow, RU, and get weather conditions. Like this.

Not just the upper US, we’re looking at hard freezes for a week in Tucson. Nasty nasty weather coming down on us.

Supposedly 42 degrees here.
The past summer itself was rather cool, we rarely got above 80.
Yet it’s all global warming.
Which somehow produces bitter cold, unseasonable temps, dandelions, the flu, ninjas, meter maids, Mayan Apocalypses and acne.

Understand. I visit AccuWeather a few times a day. That old jet stream will dip pretty low to give you folks a bit of the cold shoulder as well. :)

Old man winter taint so gentle with the folks in Siberia. Then again he was not so kind a few weeks back when parts of Alaska and the Yukon Territory had -50F readings in some parts.
