2010 is becoming the year of the heatwave, with record temperatures set in 17 countries. Record highs have occurred in Russia, Belarus and Ukraine the three nations at the centre of the present eastern European heatwave which has lasted for more than three weeks but also many African, Middle Eastern and Latin American countries. Temperatures in Moscow, which have been consistently 20C above normal, today fell to a more manageable 31C (86F) and President Dmitry Medvedev cancelled a state of emergency in three out of seven Russian regions affected by forest fires.
