Meteorologists from the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ) have predicted a chilly start to May, with temperatures expected to fall below average over the coming week. While rainfall is predicted to be lower than the levels seen in mid-April, there may still be scattered rain showers and snow in the mountains. The forecast covers the period from 24 April to 21 May, with temperatures expected to reach a low of 4°C and a high of 15°C over the next two weeks.
According to the meteorologists, the cool weather is expected to continue until 7 May, with the lowest temperatures predicted to drop below freezing on Wednesday and Thursday. Daily highs are expected to stay below 20°C until the end of the week, with Wednesday’s high temperature only reaching 12°C. Temperatures are not expected to return to average until the weeks of 8 May and 21 May.
Although rainfall is predicted to be lower than in mid-April, there may still be scattered showers throughout the week. The forecast for the final week of the period suggests a drier weather pattern, with less rainfall predicted from 15 to 21 May. The cooler weather may impact outdoor activities, but the forecast will be a relief to farmers who have been struggling with drought conditions in recent years.
