Code Orange alert for dangerous heat is declared Monday for four Bulgarian regions in northern Bulgaria.

The forecast is issued by the National Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, BAS.

Code orange means intense weather situations with potential damage, injuries and casualties. People are advised to keep track of the weather conditions and avoid any potential risks.

Code Orange for heat is effective for the regions of Vidin, Montana, Vratsa, and Pleven.

Temperatures there are to reach anywhere between 35 and 40 degrees Celsius.

The rest of the country is under Code Yellow with temperatures between 33C – 38C, 32C in Sofia.

Code yellow means potentially dangerous weather, where the forecast is not for unusual meteorological events, but requires people to exercise caution.

It will be hot and sunny in the afternoon all over the country,

The weather on the Black Sea Coast will be sunny. Temperatures will be around 30C degrees and 25C for the sea water.

July 28, 29, and 30 are the astronomical "hot ones."

According to folklore, during these days one must stay away from the sun and pray for it to be merciful to people.

Farm work should be avoided as well as baking inside the house in order to prevent fires, again according to folk legends.
