We wrote earlier that this week would be the first with intensive snowfall on the lowlands. Weeks before, snow arrived in the mountains in Northeastern and West Hungary, creating a 20-30-centimetre thick layer in the Kőszeg mountains, near the Austrian border. However, this morning, powder snow arrived in several Western Hungarian cities, including Zalaegerszeg, Szombathely and even Pápa. You may find further details in our article below. Do not forget to check out our videos and photos!
According to Időkép, intensive snowfall arrived in the Western regions of Hungary this morning. The meteorological news website added that the snow would probably remain in the colder valleys.
As we wrote before, a Mediterranean cyclone carries the precipitation. That is why it is raining in many places in Hungary, and snow surprised the residents of some Western Hungarian settlements.
That was the first time frozen vapour fell in the lowlands in Hungary this autumn and winter. Before, that happened only in the higher mountains of the Kőszeg and Sopron mountains, where the snow layer was 20-30 centimetres thick last week. Here is a photo from Telekes, Vas county, Western Hungary.
Here is the video sent by a reader of Időkép recorded earlier this morning:
Here is a video from Veszprém:
Snow covered Szentgotthárd (a town near the Austrian-Hungarian border), Zalaszabar, Zalaegerszeg, Hosszúpereszteg, Torony and Nagylengyel.
HERE you may check out the webcam of Kétvölgy, a small village near the Slovenian-Hungarian border. There, the snow has not melted yet. However, Időkép writes that except for the higher mountains and protected valleys, snow will disappear. They added that people living in the Northern regions of Hungary’s Transdanubia and Northeastern Hungary should expect sleet, which is mixed rain and snow.
