The record-low temperature in Piešťany (Trnava Region) on the night of April 25 and 26 broke a 61-year record. The Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) measured -5.1 degrees Celsius two metres above the surface, which is less than in 1995 when the temperature was -4.4 degrees Celsius, the SITA newswire reported.
Moreover, given the clear sky and weak winds, nearly all meteorological stations in western Slovakia recorded the freezing temperatures, except for the one at Bratislava’s Koliba. The freezing temperatures occurred mostly in the Danube Lowland.
The lowest temperature, however, was recorded in Oravská Lesná (Žilina Region): -6.2 degrees Celsius, as reported by SITA.
