Oluja for Oluja? Will a drastic change in weather disrupt the extended holiday weekend and Victory Day celebration? Find out below.

The first days of August are forecasted to be a pinch cooler than the end of July, but still a bit muggy. Showers and thunderstorms will be the most common on Friday, when localized storms, hail, and waterspouts in the Adriatic are also likely, announced Zoran Vakula for HRT on August 1, 2019.

The upcoming holiday and extended weekend should still be sunny, though not completely dry everywhere, especially not in the mainland, where showers are possible.

On Friday, showers will be frequent, localized, and more pronounced in continental Croatia, with possible hail. Sun should follow, but it’ll still be unstable with some showers possible primarily in the mountains. Fortunately for many, the heat will subside, and after a warm Friday morning, Saturday will be fresher.

In the new week, however, there is an increasing likelihood of dry weather everywhere.

Friday will also be a bit unstable on the Adriatic as the southern wind jugo makes another appearance, while Saturday will see the northern bura wind and strong northwest wind in the daytime, especially on the islands.

Due to severe storms and thunderstorms, Meteoalarm warnings have been issued for the entire country on Friday. A yellow alert has been issued for the whole country, while an orange alert is in effect for the Istria and Kvarner area.

“There will be showers with thunder in the evening, especially in the afternoon. Be prepared for severe thunderstorms that can cause great damage and protect yourself from lightning. Damage to property and trees is possible. Local torrential floods, storm surges, and hailstorms are possible. There may be interruptions to outdoor activities and traffic,” warns Meteoalarm.
