Abstract

An analysis of the effects of the town Szeged, Hungary, on minimum temperatures between 1978 and 1980 is presented. The characteristics of the urban heat island effect were examined by revelation of the relationships between heat island intensity and macrosynoptic types, cloudiness, wind speed as well as the combination of cloud amount and wind speed. Anticyclonic weather situations little or no cloud coverage, and calm or slight wind were favourable for a strong development of the heat island effect. In the case of extreme heat islands the domination of anticyclonic weather types was almost absolute.
