Record heat wave to be followed by massive storms

At least 70 meteorological stations around the Czech Republic have measured record high temperatures in the last four days. The highest measurement as of Thursday was in Prague’s Karlov station, where it was 36.5 degrees Celsius during the day, which beat the 2002 record by two whole degrees. The oldest meteorological station in Prague’s Clementinum, which has been recording data since 1775, will announce the highest measurement for the day in the evening, and it is expected to break even the temperature in Karlov. Thursday, though, is expected to be the last day of extreme heat in the near future. Starting Friday temperatures are expected to decrease and rain will most likely set in for the next week.
