Extremely cold weather is continuing in the Czech Republic, with record temperatures measured in the Jizerky Mountains: -31.4 degrees Celsius. Harsh winter conditions have continued to wreak havoc: fresh snowfall on Wednesday saw complications on many roads, while freezing into Thursday affected the Prague-Děčín railway route. Low temperatures cracked railway tracks in places, leading to more than two hours delay. Four regional tracks also are not running due to heavy snowfall.
