Meteorologists have warned for the western and southern regions of the Czech Republic, where strong thunderstorms are expected tonight. These storms are expected to be accompanied by winds of around 70 km/h, with speeds reaching up to 90 km/h in mountainous areas. The warning applies to the Karlovy Vary, Plzeň, and South Bohemia regions from Thursday at 10 p.m. until Friday at 3 a.m.
Currently, warnings of high temperatures and the risk of fires are still in effect nationwide. However, the threat will decrease from Saturday due to anticipated rainfall. High temperatures are expected to end with the weekend as cloud cover increases and temperatures gradually cool down, with rain expected across the country.
Meteorologist Jan Menšík explained that the convective system is coming to the Czech Republic from Germany, and the most intense storms are expected in the border regions with Germany.
Warnings of the risk of fires and high temperatures are still in place for the regions of Bohemia and parts of Vysočina. The maximum daytime temperatures are expected to reach only between 18 and 23 degrees Celsius.
People in the affected areas must prepare and ensure they are informed about the situation. Remember to take shelter in a safe place in case of a thunderstorm and avoid going outside until the danger has passed.
