Saturday will see 36-hour rain, which will bring 3/4 of the monthly rainfall
Perhaps Moscow is expecting the first autumn flood this year.
In the weather center “Phobos” toldthat all over Central Russia this weekend there will be record rains – it is reported that this has not happened on these dates at least in the entire post-war history. Meteorologists quite poetically describe the coming downpour: “The giant cyclonic depression of Balkan origin, having been saturated with Black Sea moisture and heat over the next day, will intensify, and this whole baric armada will move along an ornate trajectory in the form of a half-loop with a course to the shores of the Middle Volga, and on Saturday afternoon, turning to northwest, will come out exactly on the capital region, and Moscow will be in the very center of this atmospheric vortex.
By forecast, the rains in Moscow will begin in the morning and “will pour like a wall for 36 hours.” In total, during this time, 3/4 of the amount of precipitation that should have been shed for the whole of September will fall, which is equivalent to five buckets of water per square meter. In addition, a cold snap will come – the temperature will not rise above +10 degrees.
Considering that the storm sewers in the city, mostly built during the Soviet era, often fail during heavy rains, flooding can be expected this weekend as well.
