Heatwave to continue at least for another two weeks

The current heatwave is likely to continue in the Czech Republic until the end of summer holidays, with temperatures of above 30 degrees Celsius expected to return next week.

According to a long-term forecast from the Czech Hydro-Meteorological Institute, above average temperatures will stay until the end of August, while rainfall levels will remain below average for the time of year.

The Czech Republic, like the rest of the continent, is facing one of the most severe droughts in its history, which has had a dramatic impact on farming and agriculture.
