Dozens of cities, towns and villages get their first taste of snow after hot summer

By The Siberian Times reporter
25 September 2017

Here are some seasonal pictures as western Siberia gets its debut whiteout of the autumn. 

The cold blast is in contrast to last year when the first snow in western Siberia came only in the first week of October. Picture: Aleksei Salamatov

In Yakutia the snow came earlier - with the first falls on 28-29 August, before the official end of summer. 

But in western Siberia the first white blanket has now come to the cities of Omsk, Tomsk, Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, and Krasnoyarsk, as well as both Altai Republic and Altai region.

Drivers have been warned to take care across this large area.

The cold blast is in contrast to last year when the first snow in western Siberia came only in the first week of October. 

So far the coldest temperature as the new winter approaches is around minus 5C in Aldan, Neryungi, Aikhal and Verkhoyansk - all in Yakutia region, officially the Sakha Republic.

I agree with everyone's comments and really look forward to visiting these areas of Russia as well. I love the tranquility of fresh fallen snow in the wilderness as well as the crispness, freshness and smell of pine trees in the air.
