It was written that unusually light air flowed over most of the country on Friday, with peaks ranging from 10 to 18 degrees Celsius, except in the northeastern counties and the shores of Lake Balaton. Until now, the national record was 16.5 degrees on December 31, measured in Sopron in 1920.

On Friday, however, 18 degrees were measured in Fertőrákos, also in Győr-Moson-Sopron County, so based on preliminary data, this is also the new national daily heat record. Interestingly, it was also noted that they measured higher values at almost 10 of their measuring stations compared to the old peak. The capital’s New Year’s Eve record since 2002 was 14 degrees. Almost one and a half degrees higher was measured on Friday. The new Budapest record was 15.4 degrees, which was registered in Pestszentlőrinc.
The meteorological service wrote there would be similarly mild weather on the first day of the new year.
