People in Slovakia should prepare for another heatwave. The Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ) has issued weather warnings against heat for both August 9 and 10.

The first-level warning was issued for the southern districts of the Bratislava, Trnava and Nitra Regions. It will be put in place between 14:00 and 18:00.

“High temperature represents a potential danger to human health, physical activity and fire-making,” SHMÚ wrote on their website.

August 10 will be even hotter, with second-level warnings being issued for the southern districts of the Bratislava, Trnava and Nitra Regions, where the temperature may be as high as 35 degrees Celsius, and first-level warnings for districts in the Banská Bystrica, Trenčín and Košice Regions, where the temperature may be as high as 35 degrees Celsius.
