April temperature in Czechia exceeds long-term average by 1.5 degrees

The average temperature in Czechia in April was 10 degrees Celsius, 1.5 degrees higher than the long-term average taken from measurements between 1991 and 2020, the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute said in their monthly assessment of weather patterns in the country. The first half of the month was particularly warm, with the temperature in some parts of the country exceeding 25 degrees Celsius as early as April 1. The first so-called "tropical day", where temperatures exceeded 30 degrees Celsius, was April 7, the earliest record of a tropical day in observational history, according to the institute. However, the second half of the month was exceptionally cold, with snow and frost damaging crops across the country.
