Thanks to the winter cyclone that passed through the Adriatic last night, much of Dalmatia is covered in snow.
On Wednesday morning, almost all of Inland Dalmatia was blanketed under a thick snow cover. Most of the snow fell in the vicinity of Imotski and the surroundings of Vrlika, where the snow cover reached an incredible half meter in some areas. Such snow levels were not mentioned anywhere in any official forecasts, reports Dalmacija Danas on January 9, 2019.
The city of Imotski officially measured 23 centimeters of snow this morning. The first serious snow this year did not bring any major problems around Imotski, and the winter service cleared streets in the city and at entrances to the city. The situation is similar in the town of Vrgorac and the entire Vrgorac area.
Snow also fell in the entire Cetina area on Tuesday night. In Poljica, around 20 centimeters of snow fell, while 10 to 20 centimeters of snow fell almost all over the Cetina region. Up to 20 centimetres of snow fell in the area of Dugopolje, while snow also fell in Knin and Drniš. The areas of Klis, Tugare, Srinjine, Gornja Podstrana, Gornje Sitno and Dubrava also saw snow.
The islands couldn’t even escape the snow, with Vidova Gora on Brač welcoming around 15 centimeters. The peaks of Hvar and even Šolta witnessed flurries.
Forecasts show that there will not be any more rain by the end of the week, though temperatures will be colder on Thursday, and the weekend in Inland Dalmatia could be in the negative double-digits. The snow that fell in the region today could even last for around ten days.
Snow could also be seen on Biokovo and Brač from the Total Split headquarters Wednesday morning!
