Temperatures fall to record lows but fail to break all-time Czech record

12-02-2012

Temperatures fell to record lows at 75 monitoring stations around the country on Saturday night. The forecast that Saturday would be the coldest night of the winter so far proved right, but the arctic temperatures of over - 38 degrees Celsius in places fell short of the 1929 record of – 42 degrees measured in Ceske Budejovice, which remains unchallenged. Meteorologists say the worst of the cold snap should now be over with a gradual warming expected next week. The last two weeks of February should bring day temperatures at between 0 and 5 degrees Celsius and more snow.
