We reported earlier that Hungarian meteorologists expected this week to be one of the coldest of the year, bringing temperatures as low as -10 °C. However, it seems their predictions were not entirely precise. According to the latest forecasts, it will probably be colder in the coming few days in Hungary.
West Europe has been hit by a harsh cold snap. Press wrote that last night Scotland saw lower temperatures than Iceland. Furthermore, many Hungarians remained stranded in the United Kingdom due to the extreme cold, windy and stormy weather as planes could not take off. We published the story of the more than 100 Hungarian aircraft passengers who were left in London by Ryanair and received no information or help, based on the report of the Hungarian Bors tabloid.
However, it seems that the weather will turn even more extreme than previously forecasted in Hungary. According to Időkép, in the northern regions of Hungary, protected from winds and blanketed by a thick layer of snow, temperatures may go below even -15 °C during the next two nights.
By Tuesday morning, the cold, Arctic air that rules the Carpathian Basin will chase away the clouds and lessen the winds. As a result, the heat radiation will grow significantly, so Hungary will freeze down. Temperatures will be between -4 and -10 °C countrywide. However, the mountains and the northern regions will experience even frostier conditions.
Today morning temperatures on map:
The coldest regions will be the Borsod and Nógrád areas, where thermometres in some places will show -15 °C. By Wednesday dawn, clouds will grow thicker in Southwest Hungary. But in the first part of the night, there will scarcely be any clouds above Hungary, so in the northern regions, the temperature will remain below -15 °C.
Thankfully, from Thursday on, warmer and more humid air will arrive in the Carpathian Basin. The lowest temperature will be around -5, -6 °C.
444.hu compiled a list of settlements in Hungary where the weather was the coldest last night. They wrote that last night was the frostiest in Hungary this year. The lowest temperature was measured in Borsod County, in Gagybátor (-15.3 °C). That was followed by Hidasnémeti (-13.1 °C), Lénárddaróc (-12.7 °C), Bánréve (-12.7 °C), Edelény (-12.5 °C), Zabar (-12.3 °C), Hídvégardó (-12 °C), Szikszó Waterworks (-11 °C), Fertőrákos (-10.7 °C) and Jósvafő (-10.6 °C). All of the above settlements are in Nógrád and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén Counties except for Fertőrákos, which is close to the Austrian border in West Hungary.
