In the north of the Perm Territory, a natural phenomenon unusual for this time of year occurred. Three powerful lightnings were recorded in Krasnovishersk. They were barely visible because of the snow.
In the public “Meteorologist and I” and the Telegram channel of the GIS Center of the Perm State National Research University, referred to by the news agency “Ura.Ru”, it is noted that a thunderstorm with heavy snowfall and squally wind was observed during the passage of a cold front. A snowstorm is a rather rare occurrence, experts say.
The thunderstorm center was recorded to the west of the village of Kochevo. On the same day, March 9, thunderstorms were also observed in the Kirov region.
Earlier, on March 10, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, spoke about the unusual weather in Moscow over the weekend, March 11 and 12. According to him, January frosts are predicted on the night of March 11, but warming up to +6 degrees is expected already on March 12.
