After a relatively chilly period at the end of November and the beginning of December, the Czech Republic is expected to experience above-average temperatures leading up to Christmas. The long-term forecast was provided by the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (CHMI).
The forecast pertains to the four-week period from December 11th to January 7th. Even the current week will be relatively warm, with temperatures on some days climbing up to 9 degrees Celsius. The week before Christmas is expected to be even slightly warmer.
“After that, the end of the year and the beginning of the next will be accompanied by slightly colder weather, with weekly temperature values around average,” said CHMI.
As for precipitation, the Czech Republic will still get its share. “After a pronounced precipitation period, which has been ongoing on our territory since the second decade of November, there will be at least one more (current) week with above-average precipitation. In the next three forecast weeks, only average precipitation totals are expected,” the meteorologists wrote.
They expect that there will be rainfall up to Christmas, with occasional snow in the mountains. However, after Christmas, snowfall should also occur in lower altitudes.
