Bulgaria is currently in the grip of an unprecedented heatwave, with scorching temperatures shattering records across various regions of the country. Cities like Varna and Lovech have emerged as hotspots, with thermometers reaching unprecedented highs, leaving residents grappling with the unseasonable warmth.

In Varna, the mercury climbed to a staggering 30.3 degrees Celsius, surpassing a record set over nine decades ago. This significant increase of nearly 8 degrees compared to historical data from 1930 has left meteorologists astonished, underlining the extraordinary nature of the current heatwave.

Meanwhile, Lovech experienced its record-breaking temperatures, with the thermometer soaring to a blistering 33 degrees Celsius. This remarkable figure exceeds the previous record set in 1950 by over 6 degrees, highlighting the intensity of the ongoing heatwave.

The scorching conditions extended across the country, with temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius in multiple cities by early afternoon. Ruse recorded a sizzling 33 degrees Celsius, while numerous other locations, including Veliko Tarnovo, Montana, and Haskovo, experienced temperatures of 31 degrees Celsius.

However, relief may be on the horizon as meteorological forecasts predict a shift in weather patterns. Cumulus-rain clouds are expected to develop, bringing precipitation to many parts of the country. Northern and Western Bulgaria may experience intense and significant rainfall, accompanied by thunderstorms.

Despite the impending cooldown, temperatures are forecasted to remain relatively high, with minimum temperatures ranging from 13 to 18 degrees Celsius and maximum temperatures reaching 18 to 29 degrees Celsius across different regions.

Looking ahead, the coming days are expected to bring further precipitation and a notable drop in temperatures. While rainfall may persist, particularly in southern and eastern Bulgaria, there could be temporary breaks in cloud cover. Morning temperatures are anticipated to decrease, with daytime temperatures rising slightly.

Stay tuned for updates as Bulgaria navigates through this unprecedented heatwave, with meteorologists closely monitoring weather patterns and providing timely forecasts to the public.
