warm = meleg, hot = forró

Yes, generally. But sometimes there is a little mismatch between the English and Hungarian usages.

"forró talajon" would probably sound much better here.

Same here, and the hover hint was forró, because I thought about using meleg and then changed which word I used based on the hint.
