On July 24, the temperature is expected to rise to 33 degrees Celsius between 14:00 and 18:00 in the entire Bratislava Region and southern districts of Trnava, Nitra and even the Banská Bystrica Region.

As for July 26, the meteorologists issued a second-level warning for the southernmost districts in Bratislava, Trnava and Nitra Regions, where the temperature can climb to 35 degrees Celsius.
