August - September
August and September are the final two months of the high season in the Czech Republic. Temperatures will be at their peak across the country in August, although by the end of September you will feel a crispness to the breezes. A popular month for tourists to visit the country is September, as the weather is less oppressive than in previous months, and crowds begin to thin out as children nationwide (and in other countries) go back to school for the autumn term. Expect highs from the mid-70s to low 80s in August, with lows in the mid-50s to around 60. By September, most locations cool to just under 70 degrees, with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s.
