Unusually heavy snowfall of almost 50 cm (20 inches) in Moscow caused traffic jams, but did not affect flights at city airports, which are well equipped for snowstorms. The temperatures in the Russian capital dropped to 12C (9 F), but due to high humidity and wind, weather experts said it would feel more like - 21C (-6 F).
