There’s still a month of summer left, but cooler temperatures are forecast to descend on areas across the Czech Republic by the end of this week. Enjoy the warmer weather and clear skies over the early part of this week, as storms are expected to hit the country over the weekend.

Last week saw highs in the 30s before weekend storms brought in a cold front, and a similar pattern is expected this week.

Today, meteorologists forecast partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid-20s.

Temperatures will peak on Wednesday, as highs enter the low-30s in what could be one of the last tropical days of summer in the Czech Republic this year.

“Ahead of a rolling cold front, warm air will flow towards us again, the afternoon temperatures will occasionally rise to the tropical thirties and the wind will temporarily increase,” meteorologist Marjan Sandev tells iDnes.cz.

Throughout Wednesday and Thursday, strong winds of up to 100 km/h are expected in mountain areas of the Czech Republic, and up to 50 km/h elsewhere. On Thursday, highs are expected to dip to 24°C.

A cold front of Friday will drop daytime high temperatures to the mid-20s.

On the weekend, storms that are expected to hit western Europe on Wednesday will make their way to the Czech Republic.

“The weekend should already be marked by increased clouds, and in most areas there will be showers, occasionally thunderstorms,” says Sandev.

Highs on Saturday and Sunday are forecast to be in the low 20s.
