Today was the warmest February day on record in parts of Croatia today as spring arrived early.
The 28th of February 2019 will go down in history as the warmest February day since measurements begun for parts of Croatia, according to provisional temperature measurements at a number of weather stations.
The last day of the month saw the warmest ever February day ever recorded in the central Croatian city of Sisak when temperatures climbed to 23.5 °C. There were other records across the country, including in the capital Zagreb where a high of 23.2 °C was measured at the airport.
The following places today where records broke for the warmest February day on record.
Sisak – 23.5 °C
Zagreb airport – 23.2 °C
Zagreb – Maksimir – 22.6 °C
Varaždin – 22.5 °C
Bjelovar & Križevci 22.0 °C

At the Grič weather station in Zagreb today temperatures hit 21.6 °C, which equalled the record set on 16 February 1998, HRT meteorologist Zoran Vakula stated.
Once the provisional temperatures are confirmed it is likely a number of other records could fall. The start of March is set to see a continuation of the warm weather for much of Croatia although temperatures will drop slightly as rain arrives on Friday.
