Following the first winter spell of bitingly cold weather for this year, the sun is shining over Bulgaria again with forecasts promising temperatures of up to 20°C.
Bulgaria saw a significant change in the weather on Wednesday afternoon after being hit by the first snow falls, rainy storms and gusty winds over the last few days.
Long after the end of the summer heat, Bulgarians are able to enjoy a few more days of the so-called Indian summer, which is here widely called 'Gypsy summer.'
Thursday will strike a sweltering 20°C in the southern regions, while in Sofia the mercury will go up to 17°C.
There will be light wind along the Black Sea coast, where the temperature of the water is expected to reach 14°C.
