Last night, a strong thunderstorm hit the Zagreb area, with heavy rain expected to continue through Tuesday, especially in the first part of the day. The central part of the country and the east will see heavy rain, thanks to a north-easterly wind. At the end of the day, sleet and snow are predicted for the highest mountains, according to Tomislava Hojsak, B.Sc. ing for HRT.
On the Adriatic Sea, moderate and strong southerly winds are expected to blow all day long, with storm surges possible later on in the evening. Temperatures on this side of Croatia could reach up to 15 degrees Celsius during that time but are expected to drop in the afternoon. On Wednesday, cloudy skies and strong winds will be common on the mainland of Croatia. While Dalmatia is likely to experience less precipitation, there’s a possibility of showers with thunder in other parts of Lika and Zagora regions during that time period as well.
The second half of Wednesday might see partial clearing in some areas but scattered rain is likely throughout Lika and Dalmatia during that time frame as well. Winds are predicted to be moderate to strong at times with stormy northeast speeds possible in some places too. On Thursday evening on Adriatic Sea, moderate gales with storms are expected especially at Velebit’s foot with hurricane force winds also possible there too. Temperatures will drop towards 4-9 degrees Celsius overall while being mostly between 10-16 degrees Celsius nearer Adriatic sea by Thursday evening.”
