On land, the chance of rain and thunderstorms is highest today, tomorrow the unsettled weather will end. Sun and heat will follow from Sunday – the temperature will rise to levels that pose a moderate health risk, according to the HRT meteo corner. A strong heat wave is expected in the Adriatic, which may have health effects, and a major and very major danger is predicted, especially at the beginning of next week.
The daytime temperature will rise up to 37°C and the nights will be very warm for several days in a row. Below is a detailed prognosis of HRT Tomislav Kozarić.
On Friday it will be more unstable on land with thunderstorms, hot on the Adriatic
Thunderstorms are more likely on Friday. While there is slightly higher pressure and warm air near the ground, relatively moist and cooler air circulates higher up. Therefore, more unstable weather is expected on Friday over the mainland, especially in eastern Croatia. It will be partly sunny for most of the day and with heavier cloud formation, there will be occasional rain and local showers with thunderstorms, especially in the second half of the day. Some fog in the morning. The wind is mostly weak. The highest daily temperature is around 30°C.
In the afternoon and in central areas chances of local light rain or showers with thunderstorms will increase and the day will start with mostly and partly sunny weather. There may be some fog in the morning. The lowest morning temperature is around 17 degrees, during the day it is mostly hot.
The heat will be most pronounced in the northern part of the Adriatic, with a moderate risk of health effects, and in Lika the temperature can rise to 29 °C. In the afternoon it will be sunny in Gorski Kotar with heavier cloud formation and some short-term showers with thunderstorms, which may also affect the Rijeka area. In the morning some fog in the valleys of the mountain areas. Moderate at night and in the morning, at the foot of Velebit with gusts and a strong storm, then it weakens and turns northwest.
In Dalmatia there will be a lot of sun, the temperature will reach 34°C during the day and the night will also be warm. In the morning a weak and moderate storm, from the middle of the day moderate north-west and west wind with mostly small waves at a temperature of around 26°C.
The southern Adriatic will be filled with happiness after a warm night and a morning storm. Daytime to moderate south-west, open sea north-west, maximum temperature is around 32°C. Outdoors the sea is moderately wavy in some places.”
The following days will be increasingly sunny and stable
On Saturday the chance of showers in the west of the interior decreases, they are still possible in the east where they can be heavier like tomorrow. Mostly sunny and stable since Sunday. The wind is mostly weak. It will be hot, warm nights are possible early next week, during the day the temperature can reach up to 35°C.
At sea, the temperature rises to 37°C, the nights become very warm and the risk of heat stroke increases. The heatwave will affect the Adriatic on Saturday, then local afternoon showers may occur in Dalmatia. From Sunday completely sunny and clear. A moderate storm will blow in the afternoon, mostly from the northwest,” predicted Tomislav Kozarić.
