ZAGREB, 13 December 2018 – Temperatures are set to drop more than 10°C in parts of Croatia as a big freeze makes its way towards the country.
This weekend there will be lows of -10°C for much of the country with snow forecast for even coastal areas.
“A round of intense snowfall is ahead for parts of the Balkans in the next few days. Up to 50 cm of fresh snow is expected in the Dinarides of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina”, Severe Weather Europe writes.
Whilst over 50 cm of snow is expected to fall mainly across lower areas of eastern Croatia, snow has already started falling on the coast with reports of snowfall on Thursday in Gornji Brela and near Klis.
The State Met Office has issued a ‘orange’ warning and advised people to take care over the next few days. More than 30 cm of snow is expected to fall in Lika with the worst expected late on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
On Sunday and Monday, it will be more stable with cooler mornings. Snow is expected in only a few places next week but it will still be chilly for most of the country.
