Meteorologists have issued a nationwide warning for rainfalls and snowfalls, warning that will come into force on Thursday morning and will expire on Friday morning. The warning issued by the National Meteorological Administration (ANM) comes into force on February 4 at 2 a.m. and is set to expire on February 5 at 8 a.m.
“During this period, there will be temporary precipitations in the form of rain, sleet and snowfall on Thursday morning, particularly in western, northern and central regions and then in the rest of the territory. Snowfalls will predominate at the mountainside, particularly in the area of the Transylvanian Alps and Eastern Carpathians, where a new layer of snow will form.
Precipitations that will surpass 15-20 litres per square metre will be registered over limited areas,” ANM informs.
Likewise, meteorologists warn that there will be wind gusts and the temperatures will fall.
“There will be period of time in which the wind speed will grow at the mountainside, reaching speeds of over 60-70 kilometres per hour, while in the rest of the territory the speeds will be lower (generally below 50-55 kilometres per hour). The weather will cool down in all regions, so that on Friday morning, February 5, temperatures will be mostly below zero,” the ANM communiqué adds.
Likewise, meteorologists also announce that “on Wednesday, wind speed hikes will be registered at high mountain altitudes, the wind gusts surpassing 80 kilometres per hour and blowing the layer of snow already formed.”
