Highest parts of High Tatras record freezing temperatures

Despite it being summer, temperatures in the highest parts of the High Tatras mountains fell below zero at the beginning of the weekend, with areas above 2,200 metres receiving around 10 centimetres of snow, the TASR newswire reported on July 8.

The mountain rescue service has said that hikers and tourists should be careful, especially when crossing mountain passes and snowy areas in the upper reaches of the range, and should be wary of patches of black ice in the mornings.
