Heat wave to last until August
Across the Czech Republic, record temperatures have been observed in recent days, and the hot weather is likely to continue until the end of the month. The Prague-based meteorology service Meteopress forecasts that the country will see temperatures of over 30 degrees Celsius every day in July and possibly until mid-August. The heat has also lead to road damages. Police had to close down a nine kilometer stretch of a motorway connecting Prague and Plzeň on Wednesday, because the heat had warped the road.
