Prague, Nov 3 (CTK) - The Czech Republic has experienced an exceptionally warm early November and dozens of places across the country reported record high temperatures on November 3, a representative of the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (CHMU) has told CTK.

The highest temperature of 20 degrees Celsius was recorded in Lednice, south Moravia.

New record high temperatures for November 3 were hit in 35 out of the 150 meteorological stations in the country, which have all been reporting data for at least the past 30 years.

The highest temperatures were reported in southern parts of Bohemia and Moravia. The temperature of 20 degrees in Lednice equals the previous record set on November 3, 1970.

Temperature records were also set in Moravské Budějovice, south Moravia, which reported 18.9 degrees, 0.9 degree more than the previous record 50 years ago.

Similarly, Troubsko, south Moravia, and Bynov, south Bohemia, recorded a November 3 record high at more than 18 degrees in both locales.

Temperature records in the Czech Republic were also topped on Monday as meteorological stations reported highs over 19 degrees Celsius. A record of 19.6 degrees was reported in Tuhan, central Bohemia.

From Wednesday, however, meteorologists expect the temperatures to fall, not exceeding 13 degrees during the daytime through the end of the week.
