Czech Republic Expects Above-Average Temperatures Until End of September, Cooling Trend in Early October
Meteorologists predict that the Czech Republic will continue to experience above-average temperatures until the end of September, despite a slight cooling period this week. The Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ) outlook covers the period from September 11 to October 8, indicating that temperatures will remain higher than usual until the beginning of October.
The recent tropical conditions, with temperatures reaching 32.8 degrees Celsius in places like Doksany, are expected to persist on Tuesday. However, a cold front will pass over the Czech territory on Wednesday, bringing a temporary drop in temperatures. Despite this cooling period, high temperatures are anticipated to continue for the remainder of September.
Meteorologists noted that unusually warm weather will dominate the coming weeks, resulting in above-average temperatures for the entire month. However, a cooling trend is expected to begin in the first week of October, with weekly maximum temperatures decreasing from 25°C at the start of the forecast period to 17°C in early October. Average weekly minimum temperatures will also drop below 10°C by the end of September.
In terms of rainfall, the dry period that began in early September will be interrupted by localized precipitation in the middle of this week. While the last ten days of September may bring slightly more precipitation, weekly rainfall amounts are expected to remain within normal values. The outlook for the start of October remains uncertain, but a drier trend is more likely, according to ČHMÚ.
It’s important to note that the monthly outlook provides an overall assessment of the weather and may not account for all possible variations. The forecast has an approximate success rate of 75% for temperature predictions and around 65% for precipitation forecasts. Additionally, the outlook for the third and fourth weeks often aligns closely with long-term climatic values for those periods.
In summary, the Czech Republic is poised to experience above-average temperatures until the end of September, followed by a cooling trend in early October. While a slight increase in precipitation is expected in the last ten days of September, the outlook for rainfall in early October remains uncertain. This information is crucial for planning outdoor activities and making agriculture-related decisions, taking current meteorological data into account.
