The sunbathing and swimming season has already started for some in Croatia, but next week it will start for a lot more people with a spring heatwave set to arrive.

Although summer does not officially start for almost another month, it will feel like summer in most parts of Croatia next week as temperatures are set to soar up to 30°C.

This weekend will bring sunny and dry weather across the country, with a high of 28°C in the capital Zagreb and 26 °C on the coast. The last week of May will see temperatures gradually climb, and according to HRT’s forecast, up to, and over, 30°C as a mini spring heatwave arrives.

Going to be a long, hot summer

Earlier this month leading global meteorology forecasting service AccuWeather released their 2017 Europe summer forecast, revealing that Croatia would be in for a long, hot summer.

“Prolonged heat, including several dangerous heat waves, will be a major issue across southern and eastern Europe throughout the summer”, AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alan Repper said.

A long, hot summer is expected across southern Europe, including Croatia, as prolonged periods of above-normal to extreme heat are set to take hold from Italy into the Balkan Peninsula.
