Goodbye Croatia's Snow - Country This Week to Bask in 15°-17° Temperatures

While Croatia’s snow has been the cause of some difficult travelling conditions over recent weeks, particularly by road, the pristine blanket of white left across the ground has proven to be an irresistible draw to those who like to get out-and-about. Beautiful photography has appeared of the country’s nature and a landscape covered by Croatia’s snow, and scenes of youngsters enjoying sledging and snowball fights – much more heart-warming than the chilly climes themselves.


Most of the country will have to this week wave goodbye to the snowman still standing in the front garden as a rapid increase in temperatures is predicted to visit much of the country. Croatia’s snow will struggle to survive unusually warm daytime highs of between 15° – 17°

An increasingly hot south wind will cause a rise in temperature even more pronounced than that experienced ten days ago, when Zagreb broke the date record for January 22 with a high of 15.7° C. In the second half of the week, temperatures are predicted to rise to 16°, in some places possibly closer to 20° C

The results of the rising temperatures may not be entirely pleasant – fog will persist in some areas during the mornings, with lower-lying continental areas most affected. Rain and cloud will accompany the temperature change elsewhere, further dwindling Croatia’s snow.


The warmest areas should be the Dalmatian coast and islands, with a little frost still persisting in the Dalmatian hinterland. Rain is predicted in Kvarner for the weekend. It will be warmer and sporadically sunny on the mainland from Thursday, with an average morning temperature guessed to be between 5 to 8° C and daily temperatures of above 10° C. Moreover, on Saturday in central Croatia the temperature should probably rise to 17° C.

Those who are not yet ready to say goodbye to Croatia’s snow needn’t despair. Winter doesn’t officially end until 20 March, so there’s plenty of time left for another cold snap. And, existing snow will linger in mountainous areas for anyone wishing to go and take in the spectacular scenes. “Hajdemo u planine!”
