Apparently, weather modification has been used before in Moscow out ahead of the 2 major holidays of Victory Day in May and City Day in September in order to keep skies clear and the rain from falling on their parades. So how will this work? The city will pay the air force to seed the clouds from November 15th to March 15th to prevent “very big and serious snow” from falling on the city. This promise isn’t for all snow but for the large snows and blizzards that can occur during the winter. It appears they expect some snow to make it into the city but if all goes as plan they won’t have large crippling snow storms. The estimated cost to use weather modification is estimated to be half of what the city of Moscow has budgeted for snow removal each year.
