    Weather forecast (19.03.2021 – morning)
    Rain and snow will fall in almost the entire country from Saturday to Wednesday
    A Mediterranean cyclone passes over Greece and Turkey, which will affect the southern half of our country during the day. There will be more significant clouds and rainfall in Central Southern and Southeastern Bulgaria. It will snow in the Rhodopes. The wind has already calmed down and today it will be weak almost all over the country. Temperatures in the afternoon will be between 6 and 11 degrees. The warmest will be in the valley of the river Struma.

    In the mountains of Southwestern Bulgaria and some massifs of Stara Planina it will snow, in Strandzha and Sakar – rain. The wind will be weaker than in recent days, and temperatures in the warm part of the day will be between minus 6 and plus 1 degree.

    With the onset of the astronomical spring on Saturday to Wednesday, our country will again fall under the influence of an extensive multicenter system with low pressure. It will rain on Saturday around noon from the southwest, first rain, and with the fall of temperatures, wet March snow. Heavy snowfall is expected in many places in the Danube Ranina on Sunday evening and Monday. Stopping the rains is not expected until Wednesday night. Daily temperatures in the coming days will fluctuate in the range of 5-8 degrees.

    Snow, rain and cold in almost all of Bulgaria

    In many places in the country – in the western regions, in the Fore-Balkans and in the Danube plain, a snow cover will form, which will melt quickly. Some weather models allow up to 20-30 centimeters of snow cover. In the mountains to the southwest and in the Balkan Mountains will accumulate significant amounts of new snow.


    Before us is another winter situation. It will be relatively quiet and friendly until noon on Monday. The clouds will gradually increase from west to east, and temperatures will reach their maximum for the day – between 10 and 15 degrees.

    In the afternoon, with the passage of a cold front, rapid cooling will begin. The wind will become cold from the northwest and will have strong gusts in the Danube plain and in the mountains. It will rain, and the precipitation will cover Western and Central Bulgaria. As temperatures drop in the evening, the rain will turn to snow.

    It will remain cloudy and windy on Tuesday night. Daily temperatures will be between 3 and 8 degrees. Rainfall in the west will stop, but in the central and eastern regions it will rain and snow. Snow cover will also form. Due to the strong wind there are prerequisites for winds on the roads.

    On Wednesday it will remain windy, with dynamic clouds and isolated light rain and snow. Rapid warming will begin and on Thursday and Friday the daily temperatures will be up to 10-15 degrees. The weekend will be cloudy, cool, with light snowfall in the mountains of Western Bulgaria.

    In the foreseeable future, winter will continue to alternate between warm and cooler periods. The warmer ones will be around February 10-11 and 17-18, and the cooling ones with potential for rain and snow precipitation – on February 12-13 and 21-22.
