According to the expert, due to the snow that fell on Sunday, the height of the snow cover in Moscow at the reference weather station VDNKh increased to almost 36 cm.

"Thus, the snowdrifts became the highest in the entire series of observations. The previous record was in the first decade of 1952, and then the height of the snow cover was 27-31 cm," Shuvalov said.

He added that the snowfall had eased quite well by Sunday evening, so "very light" snow is expected today.

"We are already in the rear part of the cyclone. The more active part is already far to the east. That's why it's snowing there, and we have a little snow. But on the other hand, the wind will make itself felt, its gusts can reach 12-14 m/s. Outside, -7...-9 °C, while 12-14 m/s already looks like -15 °C. Well, the departure of the cyclone will just open the way for an Arctic invasion. From the second half of the week, we will have about -20 ° C in Moscow," the RT interlocutor concluded.

Earlier, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia, Roman Vilfand, warned of abnormal frosts at the end of the coming week in Moscow.
