Although April is already underway, Czechia will get another spell of winter weather this week.

Temperatures in the capital will be around, or slightly below, freezing for the next couple of nights, with daytime highs at about 4 degrees Celsius according to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute. A mixture of both overcast and sunny weather is expected this week.

Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will be particularly cold, with temperatures set to drop to as low as minus 5 degrees Celsius in the north (Liberec) and west (Zlín) of Czechia. Moderate snow showers, which already occurred over the weekend, will happen again this week in the mountains.

According to meteorologists, cold air is currently flowing into the Czech Republic from the northeast. 

"In the mornings, frost or ice can form on the roads, and snow will also occur in the lowlands. Night frosts will again bring damage to Czech vegetation”

Czechia’s freezing spell will last till Thursday. The end of the week will see slightly higher temperatures, hovering around the 10-degrees-Celsius mark, with rain expected in the capital – and across the country – during the Easter weekend.

Spring-like weather will finally settle in for good around the middle of the month, with temperatures set to reach highs of 16 degrees Celsius in the capital in less than two weeks.
