    Temperature in Moscow is near to reach the absolute record of 1920 with 36.8 degrees Celsius (98.24 degrees Fahrenheit), Moscow meteorological bureau's official said on Saturday.

    "At 17:00 Moscow time (11:00 GMT) the principal meteorological station at the National Exhibition Center registered 36.7 degrees Celsius breaking the record of 1936 with the maximum temperature for July of 36.5 degrees," the official said, adding the temperature was unlikely to rise.

    July 24 became the hottest day for the 130-year history of the meteorological observations.

    The meteorologists said the next five days Moscow may see more record hot days with Sunday's temperature of 33.5 degrees and 34.8 degrees on Tuesday. These figures are the highest since 1936.

    On Friday, a source in the city's meteorological bureau said July 2010 had become the hottest month on record in Moscow.

    The unprecedented Russian heat wave continues to rage on, with July already the hottest month on record.

    While emergency teams deal with rising cases of heat stroke, forecasters say the hot weather is set to stay.

    With mercury hitting record highs in Moscow and office dress-codes eased all around, the city of 12-million is starting to look like a beach resort.

    Fountains have become bathtubs with people taking every opportunity to escape from the searing heat of the capital. Other Muscovites have taken more risky dips in the river, the result of which has led to three hundred people drowning this week alone.

    According to forecasters, it doesn't look like Russians will have a break from this furnace anytime soon.

    “This is a serious abnormality. The Russian weather service has never measured such temperatures in Moscow in July,” said Dmitry Kiktyov, Deputy Director of the Hydrometeorological Center of Russia. “According to our calculations, it hasn't even reached its peak yet.”
