By the end of the week, temperatures will climb back into the tropical 30s, then the weather in the Czech Republic should return to the long-term average. This is estimated in the monthly outlook of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ). However, rainfall is expected to be more frequent during July.
“After the very variable weather, both in terms of temperatures and rainfall of the last four weeks, we expect a return to normal values characteristic for this time of year in the coming period until the end of July,” the meteorologists said.
The end of the first week of July will be hot. Temperature highs are expected to move above 30 degrees Celsius in at least parts of the country by Friday. However, by Saturday, temperatures are expected to drop below 25 degrees.
However, there may be isolated showers this week with totals of around 50 millimetres, hail and wind gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour.
Temperatures are expected to be between 21 and 30 degrees during the week of 12-18 July, with night-time temperatures around 13 degrees.
Meteorologists expect similar weather for the following week between July 19 and 25. Night temperatures are expected to fall towards 17 to 10 degrees, while daytime temperatures are also expected to be in the range of 19 to 31 degrees Celsius.
By the last week of July, temperatures should be in the low 30s, between 22 and 27 degrees during the day and 9 to 15 during the night.
“In terms of total rainfall, we expect that the period from July 5 to August 1, 2021 should also be average for the country as a whole,” the meteorologists added. The average rainfall for the next four weeks is 80 millimetres.
So far, the most rain fell in 1997, when meteorologists measured 203 litres per square metre. The lowest rainfall was in 2013 with 15 millimetres.
