An early autumn wave of warm weather is to hit Croatia over the coming week with temperatures expected to up to 10 °C more than average.
Monday is expected to bring warm temperatures for much of the country with the high in continental Croatia. Slavonia in the east is expected to see temperatures reach 25 °C whilst highs on the Adriatic coast and the islands will be between 20 and 25 °C.
Leading website Severe Weather says the warm weather will persist under a stable ridge and additional warm air advection will push warm air into western Europe.
“Very warm weather is expected across much of Europe. By the second half of the week, large parts of Europe may be 7-10 °C warmer than average for this period. Temperatures are expected to climb into the mid-20s in central Europe by the middle of the week and approach 30 °C in parts of France and even climb above 30 °C in parts of Spain,” Severe Weather writes.
The warm weather is set to continue for much of October.
“Expect well above average temperatures and very warm weather across much of southeastern and central Europe as well as over large parts of southeastern and eastern Europe. This is the result of all three systems: the ridge over eastern Europe, warm air advection ahead of the deep trough over the Atlantic and warm air advection in the warm sector of the cutoff low over the central-western Mediterranean,” Severe Weather concludes.
The forecast for much of Croatia over the next 1o days is for bright sunshine and highs in the mid 20 °Cs.
