A natural phenomenon causing the sea to recede, leaving boats on the ‘dry’ has occurred this weekend in the bay of Stobreč near the city of Split on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast.
The weekend, the weather on Croatia’s coast was stable and mostly sunny. In parts of Dalmatia, a moderate bura wind has been blowing, which has very strong gusts at the foot of the coastal mountains.
After a cool morning on Saturday, and occasional frost in the Dalmatian Hinterland, the daytime temperatures were pleasant, reaching around 10 degrees Celsius on the coast.
As Dalmacija Danas reported, the stable weather on the Dalmatian coast supports high air pressure whose values at sea level are around 1030 hPa. The anticyclone caused an extremely low tide, causing the sea to recede in coastal areas.
Tidal movements in the Adriatic sea are usually very slight and the scenes from Stobreč, which were captured by Marina Blažević, are not common.
