What will winter 2021/2022 be like in Russia?
Long-term weather forecasts are causing more and more problems for meteorologists. It is difficult to predict in advance what will happen with the weather, which has changed so much in recent years.
Previous computer weather models confirm that there will be a harsh winter. According to forecasts, we expect abnormal thawing in December and icy January.
Will the whole winter of 2021/2022 surprise the inhabitants of the European regions of Russia with cold weather? Today it is difficult to predict with certainty, as the weather conditions are constantly changing under the influence of cyclones.
Meteorologists report that by December 21, the beginning of the astronomical winter, the intensity of the snowfall will decrease. By the winter break of 2022, temperatures will drop to climatic standards. Defrosts and icy rains will remain in the meteorological past.
What will the weather be like in January 2022?
Frosts and moderate snowfall will be the main signs of the weather in early January. In northern European Russia, temperatures are expected to be slightly higher than in previous years.
In the middle zone of the Russian plain, the temperature pendulum will fluctuate from zero to minus 25, so meteorologists predict a variety of weather conditions. According to the forecast models, frequent snowfalls, black ice, fog are expected in the areas of Moscow, Vladimir, Ivanovo at temperatures close to zero.
In the southern regions of European Russia, the average monthly air temperature will remain within the long-term climate norm, which is set over a period of 30 years. However, the total rainfall will exceed expectations. Balkan cyclones will regularly bring atmospheric moisture here in the form of snow and rain.
What will the weather be like in February 2022?
According to meteorologists, February will be surprised with lower temperatures than January. The winter of 2022 will replace the thaws of December. At the beginning of the month, strong frosts will break in the areas of Leningrad, Novgorod, Vologda, Kostroma.
Heavy snowfall will occur in Smolensk, Bryansk, Kaluga regions. Avalanches will increase in Moscow, Ryazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Tver. Snowstorms will break out in the northern regions: the Volga region and the upper parts of the Volga will be covered with snow.

The coldest areas in February will be Perm Region, Kirov Region, Komi. An ice trap will form here: the lowest temperatures will last until March 2022.
The weather in the regions of Murmansk, Arkhangelsk, Karelia will continue to be formed by cyclones of the North Atlantic, but warm winds will regularly blow northwest.
New temperature records are not ruled out in February 2022: in St. Petersburg, Murmansk, Petrozavodsk will be warmer than in Moscow, Vologda, Ivanovo. Abnormal thawing will result in the snow melting before the calendar dates. Frosts up to minus 15-20 degrees will not be uncommon.
Meteorologists agree that the weather next winter may be severe, icy and unusually hot, as it was several years ago. One thing is clear: in 2022 we will have more rainfall than last winter, which means, according to meteorologists, the summer will please the people of central Russia with softness and moderate heat.
What will the weather be like in the ski resorts in the winter of 2022?
It is best to postpone the winter holidays at Rosa Khutor in Krasnaya Polyana in December: due to the large amount of wet snow and high temperatures, it will be difficult to ski here. The best month for skiing is January.
You can safely go to the Beaver Log in Krasnoyarsk Territory: a solid snow cover has been created here. Meteorologists warn of 30-degree frosts, but by January they will weaken. Here comes an anticyclone for the winter holidays. Sunny weather will last from December 29 to January 9.
Winter in the Moscow region has already become a taste: the depth of snow in some areas has exceeded 25 cm. Lovers of active winter recreation can safely go to Sorochany, a ski resort not far from Moscow. According to forecasts, with constant temperatures below zero, the ski season can last all winter here.
