Weather Alert: Hottest Days Still To Come In Hungary
This week will be the hottest in the season so far, the national weather service warned on Monday, adding that maximum temperatures may be around 35 C in many places.

All-time highs for this time of the year were around 39-40 C, the service said.

Temperatures will temporarily drop in western and central parts of the country towards the end of the week, while the heat wave will be uninterrupted in the east.

The lowest temperature on Wednesday was just above the last August first record reached in 1948, with a temperature of 24.5 C, the office said today.


Current forecasts suggest the heatwave will carry on into the weekend with maximum temperatures above 30 C and more than 20 C during the night.
