Just across Poland’s southwestern border, temperatures in the Czech Republic dropped below minus 20C (-4F) in many places.
The lowest temperature, of -27C (-16F), was recorded Monday in Orlicke Zahori, a mountainous village 160 km (100 miles) east of Prague and near the Polish border, according to the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute.
The freezing weather was expected to be replaced by heavy snowfall in the northeastern Czech Republic, the institute said.
