After the warmest Christmas on record, New Year’s Eve could be the same in Romania

The first day of Christmas was the warmest on record. The thermometers showed 20.9 degrees in Calafat and 17.2 degrees in Bucharest. Record temperatures were recorded at more than 90 weather stations. The day after Christmas also brought record temperatures. And as the estimates show at the moment, it will also be very warm on New Year’s Eve, when it is possible to reach new records, says the director of the National Meteorology Administration (ANM), Elena Mateescu.

“Until the end of the year, the weather will remain in the same area of high temperatures, for this period in the calendar, with temperatures between 5 and 14 degrees. Even the first day of 2024 is likely to bring values that will characterize warm weather, with maximums of up to 10, 11, 12 degrees. Overnight, lows will be positive across most of the country. It is possible to set new records. Until then we will evaluate, I think it is good to anticipate already. From the data from the beginning of the year until now, there is a very high probability that 2023 will be the warmest year in the history of measurements in our country. It is possible that we will remain in this record, given the warmer weather until the end of the year,” Mateescu said.
