The first snow in July was recorded on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday due to low temperatures on the Pietrosu Rodnei Peak, Maramureş County, at an altitude of over 2,300 meters.
Borșa Mayor Sorin Timis said he does not recall snowfalls in mid-summer.
“In the last three to four days, the weather gradually cooled, and on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday it snowed in the mountains, so we have the first snow on the Pietrosul Rodnei Peak, at over 2,300 meters altitude, the first registered in July. I think the temperature dropped to zero degrees. I do not remember to see snow in July. 15 years ago, in August, mild snowfall was seen up in the mountains, but not in July,” Timis said, according to hotnews.ro.
According to him, the temperature was low also on Wednesday morning, about 10 degrees Celsius in the center of Borsa locality.
