Russia has been transformed by a rare ‘black blizzard’, as heavy snowfall sweeps across the European nation.
The storm, which began on Sunday night, coated Moscow in a heavy blanket of snow and has sent social media users into a frenzy at the result.
Posted on X, formerly Twitter, one local posted an incredible clip of St. Basil’s Cathedral covered in snow, accompanied by trees covered in fairy lights.
The video, which had magical-themed music dubbed over the footage, shows the Cathedral covered in thick snow, as the blizzard continues to fall down on the city.
Head of Russia’s Hydrometeorological Centre, Roman Vilfand, warned it’s going to be “one of the strongest snowfalls that ever happened in November.”
The weather phenomenon, usually encountered in the Far North, causes snowflakes to fly almost parallel to the surface, decreasing visibility to around 100 metres on the road.
The ‘black blizzard’ has amounted to 35% of the monthly average of precipitation already for Russia.
