Thunderstorms are possible during June and July across most of the country, and severe weather can allow for gusty winds, large hail and sometimes tornadoes. Our latest monthly forecasts from Frontier Weather show there is a chance of above average temperatures and below average precipitation across much of Russia throughout June and into July. While there still may be periods of thunderstorms and showers, the coverage may not be extensive.
