The heatwave in Slovakia will continue until at least Wednesday, August 1, with the highest temperatures expected in the south and southwest of Slovakia, as well as the southeast on Wednesday, the Slovak Hydro-meteorological Institute (SHMÚ) warned on July 28.

SHMÚ issued a 2nd-degree warning, as quoted by the SITA newswire, for these areas, forecasting temperatures of up to 35°C for July 30, 31 and August 1. For the rest of the country, a 1st-degree warning has been issued, with expected temperatures of 33 to 34 °C.

On Sunday, July 29, the hottest spot in Slovakia was Biely Kostol, near the city of Trnava in western Slovakia, where the temperatures amounted to 35.3°C, SITA cited SHMÚ. “So far, this figure is the highest air temperature measured on Slovak territory this summer,” the Institute informed on its Facebook profile. Other sites with high temperatures were Hurbanovo (34.9°C), Žiar nad Hronom (34.9°C), Nitra (34.8°) and Levice (34.7°C).
