A new Mediterranean cyclone is to bring a lot of precipitation to Hungary. In some parts of the country, snowfall is expected. And as Thursday approaches, the simulations show more and more snow.
According to idokep.hu, the most snow is expected in the Transdanubian region of Hungary. However, a thin snow blanket may cover even Budapest tomorrow, the Hungarian meteorology website says in its latest forecast.
The snowfall will start in Transdanubia on Thursday at dawn. Here is a video simulation:
In the Bakony and the Northern mountains, that means a thick snow layer. Furthermore, by morning, many areas and cities will be covered by snow in Transdanubia. For example, a map shared by the website talks about 7-10 centimetres in Pápa, Western Hungary. Furthermore, the snowfall will probably last until late afternoon.
In the Nagy-Hideg-Hegy (Great Cold Mountain, Börzsöny, Northern Hungary), the snow layer may reach 50 cm tomorrow afternoon, idokep.hu highlighted. In Transdanubia, we should expect strong winds able to build snowdrifts.
According to index.hu, snow might also start to fall in Budapest on Thursday. In Zala, Somogy, Veszprém, Komárom-Esztergom counties and the Danube Bend, the snow will be 5-10 centimetres thick based on the favourable scenarios. The website said that the Hungarian Meteorological Service issued an alert in Nógrád, Veszprém, and Komárom-Esztergom counties for Thursday because 5 centimetres of fresh snow may fall in just 12 hours. Moreover, they alerted the residents of Hajdú-Bihar and Békés counties because of the rain.
HERE is a map about how much snow we can have in the different areas of Hungary tomorrow.
