The thermometers in the central city of Veliko Tarnovo and the southern city of Pazardzhik hit record highs Wednesday – 31 and 31.2 degrees Celsius respectively.

Similar temperatures have been registered in Veliko Tarnovo in 1994 and 1909 when the mercury reached 30.9 degrees.

Over half of the measuring stations of the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology across the country have registered temperatures in the 29-30 degrees range.

The second largest city of Plovdiv and the Black Sea city of Burgas hit 30 degrees while Stara Zagora, Haskovo and Sandanski in southern Bulgaria – 29.

High temperatures were also measured in the northern cities of Vratsa, Montana, Pleven and Ruse and the capital Sofia.

I'm surprised that 30 degrees C is a record at this time of year to be honest. I had thought that April, May & June ought to be showing average temps of around 25 deg C. soaring up into the 40's during July & August.

This is what we have been waiting for and I am no going to complain just yet although my outdoor cold shower was exactly that - COLD and something was definitely hovering around my ears and it wasn't flies or mosquitoes.

From Sofia News.......

Bulgarians and visitors to the country are in for a scorcher at the last two weeks of June as the mercury is expected to zoom up to 40°C.

The month will end with beautiful summer weather after the torrential rains that flooded the whole country. Yet drizzles are still not ruled out.

There will be light wind along the Black Sea coast, where the temperature of the water is expected to reach more than 20В° C not earlier than the end of the month........

Off for a paddle! More news in the evening........

LOL

You have you your very own micro climate. I bet you also see -30 in winter.... either your thermometers are WRONG or you need to report this right now and record a NEW record in Bulgaria for 28th May. My bet is on the thermometer(s) being wrong...sorry.

Our thermometer registered 41C in full sun today,before the thunderstorm!! We are in a valley and very protected so that may be why we have regularly high temperatures.A friend told me that the glass reflects the heat on the therm & makes it hotter...any scientists out there who can explain?? :?

My workers told me that my outdoor (not in direct sun) thermometer was reading 37 degrees Celsius today. I had guessed that it was around the 30 mark. Then after the storm, it actually got quite chilly. It was hot enough for the new concrete to start cracking and required hosing down every couple of hours.
