Saturday will mark a significant change in the weather in Bulgaria, ending a string of exceptionally warm September and October days, and setting the stage for the real beginning of fall.

Long after the end of summer heat, Bulgarians have been able to enjoy a warm beginning of autumn, the so-called Indian summer, which Bulgarians call 'Gypsy summer.'

As usual, the deterioration in the weather will come from the north west, with a cold wind blowing, and initially affecting the western part of the country with clouds and rain.

Eastern Bulgaria is expected to stay sunny throughout the day, with highs lingering around 25 degrees Centigrade.

In the evening however, rain will start falling in the east too, and winds will bring significantly lower temperatures, which on Sunday will not reach above 10-12 C.

Rescuers advise against hiking in the mountains, as the weather change will be expecially drastic there, as usual with high winds and heavy precipitation.

The first snow for winter 2011-12 is expected to fall Saturday above altitudes of 2000 m above sea level, with snow continuing Sunday above 1500 m.
