The lesser “Code Yellow” potentially dangerous weather warning was issued for Varna, Bourgas, Haskovo, Pazardzhik, Shoumen, Sliven, Sofia district and city, Stara Zagora, Yambol, Kurdzhali, Pernik, Plovdiv, Silistra and Smolyan.

Three districts had nothing to worry about, weather-wise, with a “Code Green” for July 3: Dobrich, Kyustendil and Blagoevgrad.

After the scorching temperatures of the weekend, significantly lower forecast highs were expected on July 3: in Sofia, 23, in Plovdiv, 27, and in Varna and Bourgas, 29 degrees Celsius.

The government media office said that on July 2, Prime Minister Boiko Borissov had called together the national operational staff, requiring that all regional and local authorities be ready to respond to an expected risk of floods and storm damage in areas subject to the dangerous weather warning.
