Bulgaria will be hit at the end of the week by a freezing cold wave, bringing a new spate of snowfalls.
Mornings will be extremely cold and temperatures will not exceed zero degrees during the day, the forecast says.
Bulgaria will experience minimum temperatures ranging between -6 to -15 degrees Celsius in the last days of the year.
Unlike the Christmas holidays, when Bulgarians will enjoy milder weather, especially along the Black Sea coast and the Southeastern parts of the country, the last days of 2011 will see the mercury plunge to -18 degrees Celsius especially in the Danube plain and in places with heavy snowfalls.
On January 1, there will be fogs in the lowlands and plains. Temperatures will remain below zero during the day. However, the weather will be sunnier and warmer in the mountains.
The winter arrived early in Bulgaria in the middle of October, but was cut short by the so-called Gypsy summer.
