MOSCOW, June 27 (RIA Novosti) – Sweltering temperatures in Moscow on Thursday broke a more than century-old record for the city’s hottest June 27, and the mercury is still rising.

The temperature in Moscow hit 31.4 degrees Celsius (88.5 Fahrenheit) on Thursday, the highest for that day since 1911, the Fobos weather center reported.

Even hotter weather is expected Friday. Russia’s capital has been in a heat wave since Monday, with temperatures higher than normal by as much as 8 degrees Celsius.
