Winter comes back to Hungary with -10 °C and sleet!
Astronomical spring began on 20 March and we even changed our clock to daylight saving time today. But it seems winter returns for a couple of days, even at the end of March. Details below.
According to index.hu, Monday will be cloudy, and in the Northeast, rains will rule the weather. There, we may even expect sleet. The Hungarian Meteorological Services issued warnings because of strong winds and showers in many parts of Hungary. Daily highs will be around 6 and 13 degrees.
Expected wind speed on Monday:
On Tuesday, we should expect showers, sleet and snowstorms with gusty winds. The lowest temperature during the night will be around -5 °C. But that can go lower than even -9 degrees in the wind-protected areas. Maximums will be between 5 and 10 degrees.
On Wednesday, clouds will remain, but the amount of precipitation will decrease significantly. Western and northwestern winds will get strong in many places. At dawn, we should expect temperatures between -7 and +2 degrees. In the wind-protected northeastern valleys, there can be even -10 °C. Daily highs will be between 10 and 18 degrees.
Budapest this evening:
That trend will rule Thursday, but the temperature will increase a couple of degrees, just like on Friday, when there will be no frost at night. Clouds will remain, and there will be showers with strong winds. To sum up, the week will be windy, and wet and freezing at night. But the days will be lukewarm. Thus, the daily temperature variation will be high.
That weather will rule the weekend. Clouds, showers sometimes and gusty winds, but the temperature will continue to rise and reach almost 20 degrees in some places.
