A temperature of 26.3 Celsius was measured, which is a mere one degree less than the absolute Slovak record from July 29, 2013 in Piešťany. The Slovak Hydro-Meteorological Institute (SHMÚ) stated this, as cited by the TASR newswire.

“Influenced by the persistent south-eastern wind, a tropical night was recorded almost everywhere in the territory of the Trenčín, Trnava, Nitra and Bratislava regions,” SHMÚ writes, adding that temperatures rose to 20°C and more.

“On the lee side of the mountains in south-west Slovakia, the night did not even cool down below 25°C in some places due to warm, muggy wind,” the meteorologists added.

Horné Lefantovce in the Nitra District also experienced hot weather. “Apart from a very warm morning, we also recorded especially sultry weather in several places,” SHMÚ wrote. The meteorologists also stated that the air temperature keeps rising throughout August 10, achieving almost 30 degrees around 8:30 in Kamanová.
