The forecaster clarified that the entire April norm is 44 mm, while the weather in Moscow failed to beat the previous record of 1972, 1.5 mm was not enough to overcome it.

“With the departure of the cyclone to the Volga-Vyatka region, snowfalls will subside and stop in Moscow by 15:00, but it will fall no more than 1-2 mm, after which it will finally clear up, but it will get colder,” concluded Tishkovets.
