In Photos: Moscow Sets 60-Year Precipitation Record

The Russian capital on Monday recorded its highest level of precipitation in a 24-hour period since 1960.

Heavy snowfalls over the weekend turned into rain Sunday, which lasted well into Monday morning, blanketing the city in a layer of slush and ice.

Similar record levels of precipitation have been seen across much of central and western Russia.
