Heatwave ‘Lucifer’, which sizzled most of southern Europe last week, may have passed, but there will not be much respite in Croatia with temperatures again set to soar.

Storms on Sunday brought cooler and more comfortable temperatures for most of the country, but the Met Office has again issued Red Alert warnings on Thursday.

Wednesday will see temperatures climb to around 36°C on the Dalmatian coast, with a red alert warning on Thursday for Central Dalmatia, where temperatures are again expected to hit 40°C.

Unlike ‘Lucifer’, the heat will not be as intense or last as long with the weekend expected to be slightly cooler.


Last Wednesday at Split Airport in Kaštel Štafilić temperatures hit 42.3°C, which was the highest temperature in all of Europe on that day. Records also fell in Sinj (40.1°C), Zadar (39.7°C), Plitvice Lakes (37.9°C) and in Imotski (39.8°).
