Part of the Czech Republic will suffer from heavy downpours, but we cannot do without an umbrella anywhere on Friday. The rain can also raise the levels of some rivers. Meteorologists therefore issued a warning.
A heavy rain warning is in effect from Friday until 3:00 a.m. Saturday part of the Hradec Králové, Pardubice, Olomouc and Moravian-Silesian regions. According to meteorologists, it can rain up to 50 millimeters of water in 24 hours.
“When it rains, you need to reduce your car speed and drive very carefully. Do not enter or drive into flowing water and flooded areas,” experts advise.
