Last year was the hottest year in Hungary since 1901, the weather service said on Wednesday.

Of the ten hottest years, eight have been recorded since 2000 in Hungary,

where warming has been slightly above the global average, rising by 1.2 degrees since the beginning of the 20th century, the statement said.

The national daily mean temperature averaged 12.9 degrees Celsius last year, 1.87 degrees above the average mean between 1981 and 2010.

The summer of 2019 was the second hottest since 1901, with June 3.6 degrees hotter than the average of previous years and daily records broken both on June 15 and 16. The hottest day of 2019 was August 12, with 38 degrees recorded in Derékegyhaz, in southern Hungary.

Record temperatures were witnessed last autumn, with September 1 degree hotter than the average of previous years, October 2 degrees hotter and November 4 degrees hotter.

The weather office said the climate conditions of Hungary fitted the global trend of warming last year, also characterised by extremities in terms of rainfall.

  1. How stupid can one be to highlight such a statement:. The mean temp for last year is 1.87 C higher than the average for the 30 year period between 1981 and 2010 . Statistically it literally means nothing. There might have been(and probably were) years between 81 and 2010 when the mean temp for a particular year was even 2 degrees higher or lower hence the term average temperature. People please don’t fall for this Green Khmer Climate Histeria…
