Were you feeling exceptionally cold on Monday? Not a surprise, the temperature has not been this low during the day in the Hungarian capital since 1986, reports Hvg.hu. On 26 February 1986, the highest temperature during the day was -5 Celsius, while on this Monday (26 February 2018), the highest temperature was only -6.7 Celsius.
A 32-year-old record was broken in Budapest on Monday. On János Hill, Budapest, the highest temperature during the day was -6.7°C which is the newest record cold in the capital.
However, this is not the record cold regarding the whole country. Hungary’s current record cold is -11.4°C that was measured during the day in 1986, on top of the highest mountain in the country (Kékes) which is part of the North Hungarian Mountains. This record has not been broken yet.
It is really time to dig up all of our winter clothes and put them on (probably all of them at the same time). The maximum temperature during the day will be between -8°C and -2°C. Precipitation is not expected on weekdays. However, raining is to be expected during the weekend. Extreme cold is coming.
