This year’s Christmas did not see snow anywhere in Hungary because a warm, Mediterranean air reached our country resulting in sunny, springlike days and frost-free nights. Now, a colder period will come, but what will the year-end in Hungary look like? Here is the latest forecast.
According to Blikk, a Hungarian tabloid, early-spring weather is expected on 31 December, with temperatures between 10 and 16 °C. The day will be mostly sunny and mild, and only those areas would be colder which are ruled by thick clouds.
Based on the forecast of koponyeg.hu, there will be fog in North Hungary and the Duna-Tisza köze (Danube–Tisza Interfluve) on Thursday morning. Thankfully, it will clear by midday. The Transdanubia will be partly cloudy. Clouds will rule the East and Northeast areas, where humidity levels will also be higher. The temperature will be between 9 and 14 °C.
On Friday, the weather will be cloudy and foggy. Meteorologists expect rains in the South and East. The temperature will be between 5 and 13 °C, but Southwestern winds will get stronger.
On New Year’s Eve, fog will rule the Northeastern and Northern areas of Hungary. Meanwhile, in the Southwestern and Northwestern territories, there will be filtered sunlight. However, the Southwestern winds will be stronger. Despite that, the weather will be mild, while the temperature will be between 10 and 16 degrees, like in early spring. In areas where there are more clouds, it will be colder.
On New Year’s Day, mild weather will endure in Hungary. In the Transdanubia, where clouds will be rare, the temperature may even rise to 15 degrees. Meanwhile, in other parts of the country, where stratus clouds remain, it will be only around 10 °C. HERE you may find a map about what to expect regarding the temperature.
On Monday, the weather’s duplicity will remain. In the Northeastern regions (Miskolc, Nyíregyháza), the weather will be cloudy and rainy, while in the Southwest, we expect sunshine with temperatures around 12 degrees.
On Christmas Day, the historic maximum was almost broken in Budapest. In Pestszentlőrinc, the Hungarian Meteorological Service measured 13.7 °C. That equals the maximum of 2009 measured in Budapest’s downtown then.
