According to the SHMÚ, temperatures may reach between 35-39 degrees Celsius in these areas. SHMÚ also warned that such high temperatures are rare even in summer and that they can place an excessive burden on certain individuals.

A second-degree warning (33-36° Celsius) will be in place for the remainder of Slovakia, apart from the northern areas, such as Orava and the High Tatra mountain range, where only a first-degree warning (30-33 degrees Celsius) will be in place.
