Hot Weather in Bulgaria

The heat wave that hit Bulgaria in the last week will continue in the next few days, pushing the mercury up to more than a hundred degrees throughout the whole country, the meteorologists warned. The only place in Bulgaria that the temperatures will remain normal for the season is at the northern part of the Black Sea coast. The south-eastern winds will lose their strength later on Wednesday, which will push the mercury even higher.

The heat wave will be felt worst in the north of the country, in the Danube plain, where the temperatures could exceed the record highs for the time of the year, registered in the past century since scientists have started taking daily measurements. The highest temperatures measured on Tuesday were in Eastern Bulgaria, where Burgas broke the temperature record since 1931. Because of the hot weather the number of fires in the crop fields and the forests has significantly risen.
