PEOPLE in Slovakia will have to prepare for some very hot weather in the days ahead, with the temperature possibly rising to 36 degrees Celsius in southern regions this weekend and to 38 degrees next week, Jozef Kozub of the Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMU) told the TASR newswire on July 2.

“There will be hot, sunny weather over the weekend. The temperature will reach 36 degrees on Sunday [July 5],” said Kozub.

As many as 65 people collapsed on July 1 due to high temperatures. This number could increase significantly in the coming days, according to TASR. 

The hot weather will continue next week, when temperatures in southern districts of Slovakia may even climb to 38 degrees.

Northern Slovakia will have slightly cooler weather, especially in the middle of next week, with 30 degrees expected in the Spiš, Orava and Kysuce areas.

Apart from tropical days (over 30 degrees in the daytime), warm nights can also be expected.

“We had a tropical night in Koliba [area] in Bratislava last night, which means that the temperature didn’t go below 20 degrees,” said Kozub.

According to him, the southern part of Slovakia will experience such warm nights over the next few days.
