Climate change affecting Slovakia

THIS summer is likely to bring higher temperatures and drought after low rainfall in the winter and spring, meteorologists say, pointing to a trend of more volatile climate change in Slovakia.

Hydrologist Michal Kravčík said that the temperature increases may be a result of the greenhouse effect.
