Conditions in the mountains are relatively good for hiking and skiing, the Mountain Rescue Service (MRS) told BTA on Thursday. In the higher parts of the Balkan Mountains the weather is foggy with moderate wind, not particularly pleasant. Elsewhere it is quiet and cloudy with good conditions for hiking.
People should be extremely careful when crossing steep and snowy slopes as they are dangerous due to weather getting warmer, mountain rescuers warned.
No incidents with tourists were registered during the past 24 hours.
There are broken clouds over the mountain ranges of Western Bulgaria, the National Institute of Meteorology and Hydrology said. In the remaining regions it is significantly cloudy with showers, snow at higher altitude. Moderate northerly-northeasterly wind. Highs: about 6C at 1,200 m, about 2C at 2,000 m.
