In the Czech Republic, in the last days of March, temperature records were set at many stations, but the limit of a summer day, i.e. 25 degrees Celsius, was not exceeded. More than 25 degrees Celsius was the first time this year on April 1st. The warmest was on Easter Monday in Karviná with 26 degrees Celsius. Last year, meteorologists recorded the first day of summer about a month later.

This year, in addition to March, February was also exceptionally warm, which was even warmer than most Marches. The average temperature in February reached 5.7 degrees and was 6.1 degrees above the 1991 to 2020 normal.

While February was rich in precipitation, on average more than 150 percent of normal fell in the territory of the Czech Republic, March was rather normal in terms of precipitation. “Precipitation-wise, the month of March was, according to a preliminary assessment, on the border of a normal and sub-normal month in terms of precipitation,” said the ČHMÚ.

According to meteorologists, the data are preliminary, a more detailed assessment of the weather for March will be published by the ČHMÚ in the first half of April.
