Climate and Weather

The climate of the Czech Republic belongs to the Central European type in which the climate is becoming more continental from west to east. The average daytime temperature in Prague is 9.5°C in January and 30.9°C, 32.7°C and 31.8°C in June, July and August respectively. Prague is therefore one of the hottest and driest places in the Czech Republic (486 mm of precipitation per year).

Other towns and regions in the valleys of Bohemia also have a low precipitation rate. Other areas in Bohemia have a more unstable climate, which is somewhat similar to the Dutch climate. The wind is less strong and there is more snow.

The average temperature in the whole of the Czech Republic is 18 to 21 °C in July, the warmest month. The coldest month is January with an average of -5°C to -11°C. In January the average daytime temperature in Prague is -0.9°C.

Precipitation varies greatly from place to place, a consequence of the country's hilly nature. The three summer months receive the most precipitation. The driest period is from December to February with an average precipitation of 190-200 mm. The driest areas are Central Bohemia and Southern Moravia. The average precipitation is 450-650 mm per year in the valleys and 1000-2000 mm in the mountains. Floods are a regular occurrence in the Czech Republic.

In Moravia, the lowlands and valleys in the middle and south have a drier climate and it is on average warmer than in Bohemia. The mountainous regions of Moravia have a rather unstable, humid weather with precipitation amounts up to 1550 mm per year.
