Coldest night this fall and first snow, already happened

Temperatures dropped below freezing on Wednesday night.

If last week, when it was still summer, the temperatures were same as in July, now it seems winter is very close as the first snow this fall already took place. The first snow this autumn fell in the Retezat Massif, at an altitude of 2,000 meters, in the area of the glacial lakes the Zanoaga and the Bucura, after temperatures dipped below freezing, at night, but snow melted quickly during the next day, as the sun’s rays are still strong. “It was snowing Tuesday toward Wednesday night, for the first time in this season. But when the sun rose, the snow melted quite quickly, the more that temperatures are generally above zero, and ground is still warm,” the head of the Hunedoara Public County Mountain Rescue Service Ovidiu Bodean told Agerpres on Wednesday.
Hunedoara Mountain Rescue Service supplies aid in several places of the Retezat Massif, and that of Zanoaga is scheduled to be operational by the end of next week. The permanent services in the mountain rescue shelters at Bucura and Pietrele will stay open for one more week. The lowest temperature registered this autumn in our country, – 0,1 Celsius degrees, was announced on Thursday morning at Miercurea Ciuc. Weatherman Pal Emeric from Targu Mures Weather Center confirmed that the temperature recorded at Miercurea Ciuc was the lowest in the country this fall.
“The national minimum was recorded at Miercurea Ciuc today, of minus 0.1 Celsius degrees,” said Pal Emeric.
Low temperatures were recorded also in other places in Harghita: 1 Celsius degree at Joseni, 2 Celsius degrees at Bucin and 3 degrees at Toplita.
The highest value in the county – 5.7 Celsius degrees – was recorded at the meteorological station in Odorheiu Secuiesc.
