The map will be continually updated throughout the weekend as new data comes in.

A warning of “very high temperatures” is in effect for most regions on Saturday from 12:00 to 21:00, for areas less than 600m above sea level.

Saturday night features the greatest probability for thunderstorms – which include heavy rain, hail, and strong gusts of wind – in Eastern Bohemia, reports iDnes.

If you’re spending extended amounts of time outdoors this weekend – at the Colours of Ostrava festival, for example – it’s advised to come well-prepared for the extreme weather.
