Today is the hottest day of the week in our territory. Temperatures rise above +35 °C in sunny weather. However, a cold front is already moving through Europe, which will end the wave of warm weather and bring cooling. Slovakia will begin to influence this front during the morning hours. There is also a threat of storms. A cold front has begun to advance across Europe, which will bring relatively significant storms and precipitation in the coming hours. This cold front will reach our territory in the morning and will start to affect the weather in Slovakia as well. The cold front already affected the weather in France, the Benelux region and Scandinavia during yesterday, where there were intense storms that brought tens of thousands of lightning. Lightning detection has recorded over 150,000 lightning strikes and the band of storms will move further into our area today. At the same time, this cold front separates two significant air masses. While very warm air flows into Europe in front of the cold front, cooler air flows from the northwest behind the cold front. The heat peaks before the cold front The tide of extremely hot air mass peaks in front of the front itself, which pushes temperatures above +30 °C. It is very warm in Austria, the Czech Republic, and Poland. However, it is much warmer in our territory. Temperatures in Slovakia have already reached +35 °C. At 14:00 it was the hottest in Hurbanov, where the temperature already reached +37.3 °C. By the evening, it can be a bit warmer. However, temperatures will peak during today. Already tomorrow, a cold front will divide Slovakia into two halves, while in the north-western part of the territory the temperatures will only reach +25 °C, and in the south-eastern part of Slovakia the temperatures will reach even above the +30 °C limit. Warm air will continue to flow into this area. Storms threatened in many states A cold front will begin to form significant storm activity today. The first storms have already started to form, but they are not exceptional yet. A few storm cells occur over Germany or in the Alpine region. However, there will be many more storms during the afternoon hours. Storms will begin to form over Germany and Austria, and from this area they will move towards the northeast to the east over the territory of the Czech Republic and over Poland. The weather service Estofex is warning these areas of thunderstorms up to a level 2 warning. Estofex service forecast Storms should bring hail, torrential rain and relatively strong gusty winds here. In the course of the evening and in the first half of the night, the storms will begin to weaken and begin to move towards the Czech Republic, where they will change to rain. The night will be extremely stormy and rainy in the Czech Republic, Austria and Poland. The storms will bring the much needed and desired precipitation. It can fall up to around 40 mm. Storms will break up before Slovakia Numerical models predict that storm activity will reach our territory in the early hours of the morning, where storms and precipitation will break up at the same time. The most precipitation is expected in Záhorí and in the extreme border areas with the Czech Republic, where, however, no significant precipitation totals are to be expected. Expected precipitation totals During Saturday, storms and precipitation may occur in the north of the territory, but they will occur only exceptionally in the rest of the territory. So, the cold front is not expected to bring more significant precipitation totals, but it will definitely bring the desired cooling.
