Temperatures will go down dramatically
The Czech Republic is preparing for a return to winter conditions at the end of the week, after experiencing unseasonably warm weather in recent days. According to meteorologist Dagmar Honsová, temperatures will drop by more than 10°C after a cold front passes on Friday, bringing with it cold air from the north.
On Thursday, the weather will remain cloudy to partly cloudy in the morning, with precipitation gradually appearing in the afternoon. Temperatures will range between 9 and 13°C. Friday will be cloudy to overcast, with some areas experiencing rain or snow showers, and temperatures dropping to 7 to 3°C in the morning and reaching 8 to 12°C in the afternoon.
Saturday will see cloudy weather with rain or snow in some areas, accompanied by a sharp drop in temperature. Morning lows will slide to 3 to -1°C, and afternoon highs will be in the -1 to 3°C range, except for southern Moravia where temperatures could reach 6°C. Fresh winds will also reduce the temperature.
The cold weather will continue on Sunday, with mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies and snow showers in some areas. Morning lows will be between -1 and -5°C, and daytime highs will reach -2 to 2°C, and up to 4°C in southern Moravia. Monday is expected to be partly cloudy with snow showers in the mountains, with morning temperatures ranging from -2 to -7°C, and occasional lows of -9°C. Daytime temperatures will remain between -2 and 2°C.
While the cooling will only be temporary, it is a reminder that winter weather can still return to the Czech Republic even as the country prepares for the spring season. The shift in weather patterns may also impact certain activities and industries, such as winter sports and agriculture. Residents are advised to prepare for the colder temperatures and to take necessary precautions when traveling or engaging in outdoor activities.
Overall, while the weather forecast may change in the coming days, the Czech Republic can expect a return to winter weather at the end of the week, with temperatures dropping by more than 10°C.
