Czech Rep., Oct 14 (BD) – Poor weather conditions are expected, as deepening pressure advances from Hungary across Poland, to affect the weather in the Czech Republic. A warning has been issued by the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute (CHMI) for heavy rainfall, snow cover and flooding.
In northern regions of the country, low pressure will lead to heavy rainfall between 60 to 80mm over 24 hours. Other regions may experience 30 to 60mm of rain over 24 hours.
Due to lower temperatures and higher precipitation, a mix of wet and fresh snow can be expected in the north and north-east of the country. There could be between 10 to 30cm of new snow in regions above 700m.
