Meteorological institute: frost may hit five regions

While hardly anyone would expect frost in Slovakia in mid-August – perhaps apart from the High and Low Tatras – It may indeed appear in as many as five out of eight Slovak regions in the early morning on August 12 .

A first-degree (least serious) alert is in place for the regions of Banská Bystrica, Trenčín, Žilina, Košice and Prešov, the Slovak Hydro-meterological Institute (SHMÚ) reported on August 10.

In these regions, ground frost may appear between 1:00 and 7:00 on Friday. Even southern districts of these regions may see temperatures close to the ground falling to -2 degrees Celsius. “Such ground frost represents a potential danger for thermophilic plants (such as grapes, peppers and other vegetables),” SHMÚ cautioned, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
