Winter is about to show its teeth this weekend across Croatia with some serious cold on the way for most of the country.

According to weather forecasters Crometeo, the second half of the first week of the new year is set to bring some extreme cold weather.

The coldest days will be Friday and Saturday, when temperatures will drop at night to -10°C on the coast, -20°C in Zagorje and down to -25°C in the highest parts of the country.
