Hungary’s summers 50 days longer than in seventies
Ecological damage includes more frequent frost damage, fewer migratory birds and the emergence of new invasive species, including mosquito species spreading new pathogens, according to the study released on masfelfok.hu on Tuesday.
Between 1971 and 1980, summer was between June 21 and August 20. In 2011-2019, it lasted from 29 May to 17 September, based on the daily temperature exceeding 17.71 C, Anna Kis, a meteorologist at Eotvos Lorand University’s meteorological faculty said in the study.
Winter, meanwhile, generally shifted to early December from late November and ended seven days earlier.
Autumn shortened to the greatest extent: in the decades before 1990, its average length was around 100 days, but in the three decades following it was less than 85 days.
