The highest temperature for Sunday was registered at Pazardzhik at 25 degrees Centigrade, reports, the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS).

A record was also set at Bulgaria's highest point, the Mussala peak in the Rila Mountains (2925m asl), at 6 C.
