“If today there are still maximums of 30 degrees, tomorrow there will be temperatures above 20 degrees only in Dobrogea and the east of Muntenia, and in the rest the thermal maximums will be between 8 and 18 degrees. There will be decreases in thermal values in some regions of 18 – 20 degrees compared to the last few days.From Thursday, the highs will be even lower, reaching below normal for the period.

These manifestations of instability and rain will extend on Wednesday, it will rain in the south, center and east. In the high mountain areas there will be sleet and snow, the nights will be cold.
