Plus 38°C on the way

Wednesday will see the start the of the latest heat wave with sunshine and hot temperatures dominating the Adriatic coast. Temperatures are expected to hit a maximum of 33°C today, and it is just going to get hotter.

This weekend temperatures are forecast to hit 38°C on parts of the Dalmatian coast, the met portal says, with Sunday being the peak of the wave. Even continental parts of the country will pass 30°C this weekend. Proper summer weather is expected for all of next week as we head into September.
