The Budapest dawn temperature record was also broken, with 14.5 C recorded in Zugliget, nearly 2 C more than the daily minimum temperature of 12.6 measured at the Orszagut station in 2017.

In the capital’s 18th district, a maximum of 25.1 C was measured, breaking the record daily high of 25.0 C recorded in Ferihegy in 1989.
