Written by on August 9, 2017 in Bulgaria - Comments Off on Weather in Bulgaria: Some relief felt on Wednesday morning

In Bulgaria, the extremely high temperatures of the past days and weeks were a burden for everyone living in the country. In the capital Sofia, many had problems sleeping, since even the nights were far too hot, including the last one.

On Wednesday morning, a slight breeze and slightly lower temperatures delivered some relief to people in Sofia as well as in other parts of Bulgaria.

But still, the entire country was on a Code Yellow dangerous weather alert for Wednesday, due to expected temperatures in excess of 35 degrees Celsius. The latter still sounded a lot better than the usual 38 to 40 degrees.

National weather forecasts for Wednesday predicted a temperature range from 28 degrees in Smolyan and the southern Black Sea coast to 35 degrees in most of Central Bulgaria, and even 36 degrees on the south-western edge of the country.

More heat, a slight increase of temperatures throughout Bulgaria, was forecast for Thursday.
