This winter is looking to be the driest on record, the Czech Hydro-meteorological Institute reports, citing precipitation well below monthly averages: 40 percent of the average in December and 62 percent of the norm in January, officials said. Liberec, north of Prague for example, sees an average of 173 mm, but this winter registered only 65. Given this year’s winter was uncharacteristically warm, meteorologists say the dry period continuing into the spring months can be expected.
