More record temperatures Monday, Tuesday cooler

Several heat records were measured by the Slovak Hydro-meteorological Institute (SHMÚ) on Monday, July 29, its spokesman Ivan Garčár told the TASR newswire. “On July 29, we recorded more record values of maximum temperature of air for this day – at about the half of all SHMÚ meteorological stations with daily recordings across Slovakia,” Pavel Faško of SHMÚ said. “The hottest weather was in Dudince – 37.7 °C – which is more than the previous record of 36.5 degree in 1994.”

A cooler wave of weather began Tuesday, July 30, but the Rescue Medical Service recorded 81 cases of fainting anyway. Spokesman Boris Chmel told SITA newswire that 56 those treated were hospitalised, adding that most of rescues were needed on the Košice region (16), and the fewest in the Nitra Region (7). On Monday, 159 people needed acute treatment due to heat. After the heatwave climaxed on Monday, a cold front came Tuesday, but the temperatures are expected to exceed 30°C by the end of this week again, according to SITA.
