Russia Cold Spell While Europe “Roasts”

December 25, 2012 Germany 20C (68F), Russia -25C (13F): After surviving the coldest night of the season, Moscow might sigh with relief on Tuesday: in the wake of -25C (-13F), minus two (28F) for Tuesday sounds almost like the promise of summer. But Muscovites will still be looking enviously at Munich which is posting record highs for this time of the year with plus 20C (68F).

Not all of Europe is enjoying warm sunny days though. In Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and Czech Republic scores of people have died from exposure to the cold, with at least 57 victims reported in Ukraine alone.

    Nice pics but the text was no doubt inspired by the OberScheepleMeister. I would like to know the source of the data.

    Max temperature in Munich this last week was 14 deg C (57 deg F) and that was on one single time as far as I am aware.

    See for details, or my archive of weather maps which I am just in the process of uploading. I have two years worth tucked away!
