Temperatures are likely to be below freezing in major cities for most of your stay, except in more southerly locations such as Sochi, where it usually averages 6°C (41°F).

Except for sporadic cold snaps, June in Russia is mostly warm during the day and cool at night. However, since St. Petersburg has almost 24 hours of daylight, there is not much difference between day and night, so you should bring extra clothes in case it gets cold.
