The previous two days were the rainiest September 10- 11 in Moscow since records began.
More than 70 per cent of the average rainfall for September fell over the weekend. The previous record was set in 1978.
The weekend’s rain was caused by a powerful cyclone, which is now moving towards the Volga River.
Weather forecasters say the rain will stay in Central Russia till Saturday.
Muscovites can expect a two-to-three day break in the middle of the week with temperatures reaching 20 degrees.
The much-hyped Indian summer, however, will arrive only later in the second half of September.
