Weather in the Czech Republic

Recommended Posts

Left rain soaked London for a few days to much nicer weather in Prague. Clear skies and it should reach 24C this weekend.

Feeling very autumnal over the last month or so. Had a few frosts, plenty of dense dogs and some intermittent rain. Not much sunshine, unfortunately. Chance of wet snow tomorrow.

The wet snow arrived here this evening, after a very damp afternoon. Great to see the huge flakes and the snow was very heavy for a while. A covering on most surfaces, though I expect it won’t last long.

Feeling a little more like winter here today, finally. Maximum temperature of 1°C and a few snow grains blowing in the brisk breeze. A couple of colder days are forecast but then milder air will return.

Lovely day here today, sunny and cool. Yesterday was nasty, a strong gusty wind, cold with a brief period of sleetiness. Think we need some rain here, but not much expected with that high pressure over Europe. Needs to move up to Scandinavia for some wintry interest.

Exceptionally mild today, reached 11C, sunny spells, felt nice but weird. Should be around freezing during the daytime.

Do you know what the January record is for Prague?  Would 11C in Prague be the equivalent of London recording 16/17C in January, considering Prague is on average significantly colder than London during the winter?

The January records for Prague are 17C and –27C, so the record high is the same as for London.

Generally, as you head east, the record highs stay the same in the high teens to low twenties and the record lows go down into the minus twenties and thirties, partly due to the greater continental variability of the climate, and partly due to the Föhn effect of the Alps and the Carpathians. If you take Salzburg in Austria, the January records are +21C and –30C. In Nowy Targ in the foothills of the Polish mountains, for example, the record high and low is 16C and –37C. Krakow is 17C and –30C.

Once you go east of Poland, or north, away from high ground, the record highs begin to come down too, so in the Ukraine, Kiev has record January highs and lows of 11C and –32C respectively, and north, away from the mountains, Warsaw has records of 13C and –31C.

Apparently, the maximum January temperature ever reached in Prague is 17°C (thank you @halny).

Much of Central Europe is a fair bit above sea level (my district of Prague is 330m asl) which certainly helps with lower temperatures and risk of snow.
