After several days of spring-like conditions, winter appears to be on its way back to the Czech Republic.
A depression over central Europe has introduced a cold front and a significant drop in temperature, explaining the cooler conditions over the past few days.
The Czech Republic should expect possible complications due to frost and snow on Friday, and over the weekend, meteorologists from the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (ČHMÚ) warned on Thursday.
The frost may also damage flowering fruit trees.
The ice warning applies to the whole of the Czech Republic and is valid from Friday evening until Sunday morning.
A frost warning is in force for almost the entire territory of the Czech Republic during the growing season. “Frost is expected, which may damage flowering apricots, peach trees, and plum trees in the lowlands,” the ČHMÚ wrote.
According to the forecast, temperatures could drop to minus seven degrees Celsius overnight on Sunday.
The snow warning applies especially to Olomouc and Moravian-Silesian regions. “Snow is expected to form 10 to 20 cm in places in 24 hours,” the meteorologists said.
