Heat record broken in Hungary

August 25th was another record-breaking day as the temperature reached all-time highs for this day both in Budapest and nationwide. In the Hungarian capital, temperature was first measured officially in 1871.


The hottest point in Hungary was in the southern Hungarian village of Csávoly in Bács-Kiskun County with 39.2 degrees Celsius (102.6 degrees Fahrenheit). On this day, the previously known record was 36.5 degrees Centigrade (97.7 degrees Fahrenheit) measured in the east-central town of Túrkeve (Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok County).


The Budapest heat record of 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 degrees Fahrenheit) was measured in Pestszentlõrinc, in the south-east of the capital. The previous record temperature for this day was registered in 1890 with 34 degrees Celsius (93.2 degrees Fahrenheit).


According to the weather forecast available on Thursday, a relief in this heat cannot be expected before Sunday this week when temperatures are likely to drop to around 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) and the second half of next week may bring cloudy skies and a major drop in temperature.
