You might have felt a great relief over the past few days after the scorching temperatures of the previous week, but do not get too comfortable as from Tuesday the heatwave is set to return to Hungary.
According to the figures on the National Meteorological Institute, daytime temperatures will again reach 32-37 degrees by Thursday, with some hot nights of 21-23 degrees in some parts of the country. The good news, however, is that this will only last until Friday, when some cool air will reach us from the west.
Temperatures in the high of 30’s are not totally unusual for Hungary during the summer, but the past few years have brought some extreme highs, including the absolute record of 40 degrees measured on the 23rd of June in Fülöpháza. Persistent heat is most dangerous for children, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, but
even those who are fit and healthy can easily be affected by these extreme high temperatures.
It is important then, to remind ourselves of some very useful tips that help us keep cool.
