Sizzling heat in Bulgaria

Today has become the hottest day for 2006 with temperatures reaching a sizzling 42 degrees, the hottest areas of Bulgaria today are Sandanski, Petrich, Pazardzhik, Plovdiv and Stara Zagora. The city of Plovdiv broke it's own records today as temperature topped 39 degrees which is an all time high for the second largest city in Bulgaria.

The hottest temperature since records began in Bulgaria was 45.2 degrees and this was in 1916.

I was in Plovdiv only 2 months ago when the temperature then reached 36 degrees, most people do not realise how warm Bulgaria can get during the summer months with August being the hottest month.
