Winter slowly sets in: Romanian capital Bucharest sees first snow of the season
It started to snow in Romania’s capital Bucharest on Saturday afternoon, October 25, with big flakes, after two days of cold, windy weather: the first snow of the season.
Meteorologists had warned that the unusual warm weather for this time of the year – think 20 degrees Celsius – will come to an end, and make room for what’s more likely for end-October: temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius, and 1-2 degrees Celsius up in the mountains.
The previously sunny Bucharest is now under a wave of snow and blizzards, and temperature is around 2 degrees Celsius. On Saturday afternoon, Bucharest was the only place in the country where it snowed, but it was windy and cold in many other areas of Romania as well.
