On Monday, Hungary experienced unexpectedly cold weather. Even though spring appeared to be well on its way, it suddenly took a step backwards, surprising people with snow. Hungarians haven’t experienced May temperatures this low since 1886, the Hungarian Meteorological Service reports.

On the 2nd of March, snowdrops were spotted in the arboretum of Alcsútdoboz, signaling the start of Spring. Considering the sudden change of weather, however, they might’ve been too early.
