Summer is about to go out with a big bang next week as a ‘strong heat wave’ is set to descend on Croatia.
According to Severe Weather Europe, mid-range model trends are pushing for a new heat wave across part of Europe next week, including Croatia.
Whilst summer is set to officially end next weekend, the heat wave is set to bring temperatures up to 10 °C than average for mid to late-September.
“Such a high-temperature anomaly would mean actual daytime highs pushing as high as 30 °C as far north as northern Germany and parts of Benelux. Further south, in France, Italy and the Pannonian basin, including parts of Hungary, Croatia and Serbia, temperatures would push higher than 30 °C,” Severe Weather Europe says.
Whilst summer 2018 has been another hot one with settled weather for the most part over the country, there were no heat waves which were on a par with summer 2017 when ‘Lucifer’ hit.
Temperatures on one day last summer at Split Airport in Kaštel Štafilić hit 42.3°C, which was the highest temperature in all of Europe on that day.
The heat wave next week is expected to last from Monday 17 September to Thursday 20 September.
