The Czech Hydrometeorological Institute announced smog situations in individual regions due to Saharan sand from Saturday.

On Monday morning, they were still valid in the whole of Bohemia, as well as in the Moravian-Silesian Region and Brno. On Monday, meteorologists gradually called it off in most areas.

On the net XInstitute staff said that in regions where smog conditions have been lifted, they no longer expect dust concentrations to rise again. Smog is currently increasing in the east of the Czech Republic, but the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute will no longer announce new smog situations.

“Concentrations are currently rising in Moravia and Silesia. They should drop only after the passage of a cold front from the west in the evening. Since we expect a drop in concentrations within 24 hours, we will not issue a smog situation for the South Moravian, Zlín and Olomouc regions. The criteria for issuing a smog situation are not met,” meteorologists announced.
