It might happen that, in some weeks, you will feel better outside than inside in Hungary. That is because Hungarian public institutions will only be heated to 18 °C, while on the streets there will be 25 °C and sunshine. Indian summer will arrive in Hungary soon. Below you may read the details.
The end of this September is much colder than average, and there are a lot of rains everywhere in Hungary. That is good news because of the drought that hit Hungary hard during the summer but depletes our bank account. The heating season started in many places in Hungary because of the extra low temperatures, so people have to pay their increased energy bills earlier than people previously thought. Indian summer may ease that burden for a while soon, rtl.hu reported.
In Hungary, summer is hot and dry while autumn is windy and rainy but not extreme cold. However, hot weather can return even in October. The characteristic of such days is that, despite morning fogs and rains, late morning and afternoons are nice and warm, perfect for a jogging program or a trip. Therefore, it is not unusual to see people going to work, and school in jackets and returning home wearing only a T-shirt.
That is because on windless days, the sun waves reaching our body can raise even 10 °C on our general feeling of heat.
This year the Indian summer will not be long, rtl.hu says. Furthermore, we must wait for it for a while. Until Sunday late afternoon, the weather will be dry and cold. Afterwards, rains will start everywhere in Hungary. The temperature will rise next week, but rains will also remain.
Middle-term forecasts show that the weather will turn dry again next weekend, while the temperature will continue to rise. Though uncertainties are significant in longer-term prognoses, rtl.hu believes that hot weather may arrive in early October for a couple of days. That would mean 20-25 °C daily maximums and a lot of sunshine.
Unsure, longer-term forecasts say that there will not be tremendous rain in Hungary in October, the weather will be dry but not too warm.
In Hungary, we use the term “vénasszonyok nyara” for the Indian summer. That is because in the villages, older women could not sit in front of their houses during the summer heat, only in early autumn, when the weather was still hot but not scorching. Therefore, fall became their summer when they could talk, gossip and enjoy the sunshine.
