The Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) experts expect temperatures of 30 degrees Celsius for the first time this year today, Wednesday. Where this mark will be reached could not yet be predicted because it will generally be hot in the low areas throughout Austria. “Where it will then become 30 degrees, we will see,” it said. However, the highest temperatures are expected around 4 p.m.
The temperature mark of 30 degrees is reached earlier and earlier in Austria. Meanwhile, the first 30 is measured by an average of one and a half weeks earlier than a few decades ago, as an evaluation of the ZAMG showed.
Although the date in mid-May corresponds to the average of the past years, it would have been an earlier date, about 40 years ago. “In the period from 1961 to 1990, the 30-degree mark was reached on average on May 30, with a typical fluctuation range from about mid-May to mid-June,” ZAMG meteorologist Alexander Orlik said.
