Several heat records were broken in Wednesday's heatwave in Hungary, with temperatures reaching over 39 degrees Celsius, the National Meteorological Service has announced.
According to their post, the early morning heat records were already broken. "After the hot daytime hours, the night-time, early morning hours did not bring any refreshment until Wednesday morning, with the lowest temperatures in the country reaching over 20 degrees Celsius in several places (called tropical night),” they said.
In Keszthely, at Lake Balaton, for example, the air cooled down to only 24.8 degrees Celsius, breaking the national daily minimum temperature record. This is more than a degree and a half higher than the previous record of 23.2 degrees, set in 1997 in Tata.
The night was also extremely mild in the capital, and the 23.2 degrees recorded in Budapest also broke the record for the highest minimum temperature for the day in Budapest. The previous record in Budapest was 22.5 degrees recorded in 1963.
The highest temperature recorded to date on this day in this country is 37.9 degrees Celsius. Compared to the record set in 1994, higher values have now been recorded at several stations. The record was measured in Adony, SW of Budapest, where the temperature rose to 39.2 degrees Celsius.
In its warning sent to MTI, the meteorological service said that the heat will continue to increase: the daily average temperature in most parts of the country (with less probability in the western counties) may reach or exceed 27 degrees Celsius on Thursday, and even 29 degrees Celsius in some places in the central and south-eastern parts of the Great Plain.
