The Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) issued a yellow, first-degree warning against both heat and storms for June 21 for the Bratislava, Banská Bystrica, Košice, Nitra and Trnava Regions, starting at 14:00. The yellow, first-degree warning against storms was issued for the Trenčín, Prešov and Žilina Regions from 18:00.

In the Banská Bystrica, Košice, Prešov and Žilina Regions the warning against storms is valid until 2:00 on June 22.

Snow can return to the mountains

The heat waves will be followed by a significant drop in temperatures and strong storms on June 22. There is even a possibility that it will be snowing in the mountains, the iMeteo.sk website informed.

“A distinctive cold front is expected to arrive to our territory tomorrow evening,” iMeteo.sk reads, as quoted by the Aktuality.sk website. “It will bring stronger storms and colder weather.”

In the mountains, at a height of about 1,500 metres above sea level, the temperature is expected to drop from 15 Celsius degrees to 0 Celsius degrees, while in some areas the temperature can be as low as -2 Celsius degrees, according to iMeteo.sk.
