We fell short of breaking the national record by a few degrees, but the metropolitan record was broken by 13.3 degrees on 24 December, Christmas eve. In quite a while, this Christmas is Hungary’s warmest and most spring-like.
The last day or two have seen a rapid temperature easing. Christmas started with early spring-like weather in Hungary. Highs were near 10 degrees across the country, with colder temperatures in the northeast, Időkép writes.
The warmest temperature on Christmas Eve so far was recorded in 1958 in Békéscsaba, at 17.7 degrees. In the same year, the temperature in Budapest reached 12.5 degrees Celsius. This has now been exceeded, according to preliminary data from the National Meteorological Service
