The maximum air temperature reached 26.9°C, which is 3.8°C higher than the previous record in 2017.

The average daily air temperature was the highest on record for this day, amounting to 16.4°C. This is a 9.9°C deviation from the climatic norm, and a 2.4°C increase over the records of 1990 and 2017.
