The Dalmatian coastal city of Split was greeted with its coldest morning in the last 651 days on Tuesday…
For the first time in almost two years temperatures in the port city plummeted below zero late on Monday evening. Split (-2) was not the coldest place on the Dalmatian coast however, with Šibenik recording -3 at 8am this morning. It was minus 1 in Zadar and 0 in Dubrovnik as a cold front bringing record winds swept along the coast. Makarska was one of the worst places effected by the strong bura winds, which blew at around 200 kilometres an hour – the strongest in the last 10 years say locals.
Whilst temperatures along the coast dropped just below zero, continental Croatia is set to a few days of extreme cold weather. On Tuesday temperatures measured -13 in Karlovac and -10 in Osijek and Varaždin. The worst is yet to come with temperatures set to fall to -20 later this week for inland parts of the country. Temperatures along the coast are not expected to drop below -6 degrees.
