People in Slovakia should prepare for extreme heat, which may be accompanied by thunderstorms, on July 1.

The Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) issued a second-level warning against heat for most districts in western Slovakia and two southwestern districts of Banská Bystrica Region, where temperatures may climb to 35-37 degrees Celsius between 14:00 and 17:00. The first-level warning with temperatures rising to 33-34 degrees Celsius is in place for the rest of the country for the afternoon.

Meteorologists have also warned against thunderstorms that may occur across the whole country between 14:00 and 23:00.

The current inflow of very hot tropical air will be followed by a cold front that is currently above Germany, Poland and France. It will start impacting the weather in the evening and could result in precipitation and storms, particularly in western and northern regions, SHMÚ wrote on Facebook.

Meanwhile, SHMÚ issued warnings against thunderstorms also for July 2. They may occur in central and eastern Slovakia between 12:00 and 19:00.
