Winter is set to return to Moscow on Wednesday evening with light snowfall sweeping the city, government experts have warned.

City residents had been enjoying spring temperatures as high as 7 degrees Celsius earlier this week.

Temperatures are still expected to rise above zero on Tuesday and Wednesday, before plunging as low as minus three in the evening.

The lower night-time temperatures will see snow fall on the Russian capital on Wednesday night, mixed with some rain and sleet.

Forecasters remain hopeful that the snow will only be a temporary spring setback, with daytime temperatures bouncing back to eight degree Celsius at the weekend.
