Lower Temperatures, Rain Forecast in Moscow

After a week of searing heat, temperatures are finally set to drop in the Moscow region with thunderstorms and rain expected in the capital city this week, forecasters have said.

The thermometer will touch 30 C on Monday — roughly 8-9 degrees above average for this time of year — but will drop to 24 C on Tuesday when rain is expected, news agency Interfax reported, citing the regional weather bureau.

Temperatures will reach about 20 C on Wednesday, with thunderstorms and gusty winds also a possibility during the first half of the week, the bureau was quoted as saying.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
