According to data from hmn.ru, “intensive cooling” occurred in Siberia late last week which toppled a number of all-time daily record low temperatures. Plus, vast swathes have picked up their first snows of the season —climate.rutgers.edu— far earlier than usual.
On Friday, September 13 new record low temperatures were set in Siberia.
I’ve listed a few below (data courtesy of hmn.ru):
- In Novy Port, located in the Yamal-Nenets District, the mercury plunged to -3C (26.6F) on Friday, which pipped the previous record for Sept 13 of -2.9C (26.8F) set in 2002.
- In Aleksandrovsky, -3.2C (26.2F) was observed which busted the previous record from 2001 of -3C (26.6F).
- While in the village of Mamakan, in the Irkutsk region, last Friday saw -4C (24.8F) which smashed the previous record of -3.2C (26.2F) set back in 2003.
In addition, local forecasts reveal further hard frosts will hit the Yamal-Nenets Okrug and Irkutsk regions on Sept 16. New record low temperatures of -6C (21.2F) are possible — stay tuned for updates.

Looking at data from climate.rutgers.edu, the snowpack has begun growing far earlier than usual this year:
