Central European weather is still in a summer lethargy! Warm air will continue to move into our region. Another hot day is therefore awaiting us with plenty of sunshine during the day, slowly increasing cloud in the afternoon and occasional thunderstorms in the evening.
Slowly but surely we have to mentally prepare for more unstable weather. Already by Tuesday, it will begin to change with thunderstorms.
