The Czech Republic is experiencing a temperature jump. While on Monday meteorologists recorded the first summer day of this year, i.e. temperatures over 25 degrees Celsius, on Tuesday they expect maximums between 11 and 15 degrees Celsius. Even so, they will remain above average. Temperatures should climb back into the twenties on Friday. And the weekend should be summer again, i.e. over 25 degrees Celsius. The Czech Hydrometeorological Institute informed about it.

The first day of summer in April is not completely unusual, in 2021 the first day of summer already occurred on March 31, last year it was May 5. And this year it was followed by a drop in temperature.

“Compared to Monday morning, Tuesday’s temperatures in our territory are noticeably lower. They move most often between nine and five degrees Celsius,” the meteorologists said.

They added that the coldest time was around 5 a.m. in the Krkonoše Mountains at Luční bouda and Labská bouda, where they measured minus one degree Celsius and minus 0.3 degree Celsius, respectively.

“Because colder and moist air from the west will flow towards us behind the cold front in the next few days, temperatures will be lower during the day as well. Even so, they will be roughly four degrees Celsius higher than normal for this time of year,” said the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute.

26 °C in Karviná

In the Czech Republic, temperature records were set at many stations in the previous days, meteorologists expected the first day of summer as early as the weekend at the end of March. In the end, however, the scattered Saharan dust significantly affected the temperatures. On Saturday, temperatures in many places were two to four degrees Celsius lower than predicted by numerical models, meteorologists said.

This year, the Czech Republic experienced the first summer day, when the thermometer must show at least 25 degrees, on Easter Monday. The warmest was in Karviná with 26 degrees Celsius. New records were set at roughly two-fifths of the more than 160 weather stations that have been measuring temperatures for 30 years or more. In addition to Karviná, the temperature record for April 1 was also broken, for example, in České Budějovice, where they measured 25.7 degrees, or in Bohumín with a temperature of 25.3 degrees.

Up to 27 °C at the weekend

The past holidays were above average warm, and next weekend will be even warmer, according to meteorologists.

“Weekend temperatures will be around 25 degrees Celsius, on Sunday they could locally reach up to 27 degrees, which is an absolute extreme for the beginning of April, the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute said.

Last year, meteorologists recorded the first day of summer on May 5 at the only station in the country, in Pilsen – Bolevec, where it was 25.2 degrees. People could enjoy the next summer days only in the second half of May. In 2022, the first day of summer fell on May, but a year earlier it was on March 31 and the previous two years at the end of April.
