MOSCOW, March 30 (UPI) -- Weather forecasters reassured Russians spring was on the way after a Moscow man picketed their offices in his swimming trunks.

The unidentified protester stood in front of the Hydro-Meteorological Center Friday holding a sign that read "Let Summer Come Faster" as unusually cold weather lingered into April.

Forecasters said the protester was correct that winter should have begun winding down in March, but they said things were about to change for the better.

"Temperatures will be positive and everything will thaw fast," center deputy director Dmitry Kiktyov told the RIA Novosti news agency. "We are meeting him halfway."
