A woman shields her face while braving the abnormally cold temperatures in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk, which dropped to -35C

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30107351


record low in novosibirsk is -49

 Quoting: Swinburnian


ok you all have me totally fucking confused here with the whole F vs. C crap, and that did not help...

so when ya say -49 could you say whether it is fucking F or C? yo? thanks?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30107351


if i don't say, it's C. just like everyone else in the world but you guys. -49 Celsius (or -56 F)
 Quoting: Swinburnian


the wunderground list is F. are they saying F because that's how it's read in russia, or are they saying F because it's common to use F globally? wunderground is in the US...so by your logic, they would be using C.

"Abnormally low winter temperatures in Russia continue to claim more and more lives. Twenty-one people froze to death in only one day; 147 others were hospitalized with frostbite. The cold weather in central Russia is not going to get any warmer soon. On December 19, the cold has reached St. Petersburg, where temperatures fell below -20 degrees Centigrade. It is 30 degrees below zero in the Ivanovo region, -22C in the Kaluga region, and -25 in Tver. In Moscow, for example, the cold snap came on December 15 and will last until next Wednesday, forecasters say. At the weekend, night temperatures will drop to 26 degrees below zero Centigrade."

Flash freeze my ass.

There is nothing abnormal about a 7-10 day cold spell like this in December/January/February in Russia. This happens every year.

And plus it's not even abnormally cold. -26 in late December in Russia is not abnormal.

where in canada are you? you never heard of a cold snap? and -30 isn't so bad
 Quoting: Swinburnian


It's not the temp. that concerns me, it's the severe drop in temperature. Not a cold snap, more like a flash freeze.

why not try using those formulas with -20, loudmouth?

-20 less 32 is -52
-52 x .5555 = around -29
so -20 F is colder than -20 C
 Quoting: Swinburnian


-20 x 1.8 is -36
-36 t 32 + -4
-20 C is -4 Fahrenheit

maybe you didn't get to integers in school
 Quoting: Swinburnian


ah ha now you have got it right.......
so if the above statement is correct, how the hell can your statement above that one also be correct?
you said: 'so -20 F is colder than -20 C' which is incorrect....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7815861


because -4 is warmer than -20

That's true as long as you have the calories to deal with it. Add a little wind and it's suddenly very cold. No winds listed in the graph so prepare for night weather.

nothing outta the ordinary

sometimes its only 1 weeks outta the winter and other times its 4 or 5 weeks outta the winter.

but either way we get them temps every single winter

skiing, snowmobiling, tubing, changing the motor in your car in the driveway, little old ladies out doing their groceries and all that crap
