The heat in most parts of European Russia is likely to continue over the next 10 days, the deputy director of Hydrometcentre, a senior Russian weather official said on Tuesday.

"The situation is not changing radically," Dmitry Kiktyov, deputy director of Hydrometcentre, said. "The temperature will change insignificantly, and there will be only local rains. They will be insufficient to cushion the current situation."

But he said the weather conditions in Siberia, where temperatures are expected to stay slightly below average, looked "quite good" for crop ripening.
