The first day of August, the last full summer month, is upon us tomorrow. So what can we expect from the weather in Croatia for the locals and millions of tourists enjoying their holidays during the month?

If you are sick of heat or scorching temperatures are not your thing then it is bad news. According to the forecast for August from the Croatian Meteorological and Hydrological Service, it is going to be hotter than July with the second half of the month particularly sizzling.

July saw a number of heatwaves across the country with temperatures regularly above 35°C. August is also forecast to produce a number of serious heatwaves, the Croatian Meteorological and Hydrological Service says.

Temperatures are expected to be average for August in the first two weeks of the month – hot. But the country will bake in the second half of the month, especially in the third week where temperatures are set to pass 40°C in the shade.

The warning especially concerns small children, pregnant women, and those with heart or other related conditions.
