hard winter in the balkans

Recommended Posts

After 2006/2007 sorry excuse for a winter, 2007/2008 has shown that the cold stuff has returned, and with what style... The south of Romania and the north of Bulgaria have been hit by a huge snow storm, between the 1st and 3rd of January, leaving as much as 108 cm in 48 h in Zimnicea in the extrem south of Romania, between the 2nd and 3rd of January. Many roads have been closed, and are still closed in both country, including a highway between Bucharest and the black sea. After all that snow, some pretty cold temperatures these days, up to -27 c this morning in the center of Romania, and temperatures haven't pass yet -15 in some cities in the center of thecountry although it's noon. Bucharest has up to 52 cm of snow, and curent temperatures -9 c, and it looks like more snow is on its way.

Awesome pictures! The East Balkans do pretty well when a Russian high forms and the winds turn easterly. As the wind crosses the Black sea, it picks up moisture and dumps loads of snow especially in Bulgaria and Romania.

I was in Budapest, Hungary, last month, which is further west and bands of snow made it there from the East although not as much as now.

[qoute] welcome to the forum.[\quote]

Thank you, I must say that I find this forum very intresting.

Yup, light snow is forecast for the next couple of days, and I think a more serious snow shower is due to arrive next week-end.

An intresting detail about the temparutes. In Bechet this morning there were -25 c, now if you search in the "euro heat" thread, you will see that I wrote on the 25 of July that bechet recorded 44,3 c.

Other pictures from Romania !

Excellent pictures AE.

Its a shame the Horses have been banned from your main roads, I am sure they are most useful in such extreme weather.

Regards,

Russ
