July 7, 2019 – The crazy weather of 2019 continues, as big storms come to Croatia. The latest travel advice. 

It has been a very hot few days in Croatia, and the sun continues to shine where I am, on the island of Hvar. 

But there has been a drastic change elsewhere in Croatia, with torrential rain, and even hail (check this video) hitting various parts of Croatia this afternoon. Radio Rijeka announced that the temperature in the city dropped 8 degrees in ten minutes between 12:20 and 12:30, during which time 20 litres of rain fell and winds got up to 75 km/h.

The Croatian Automobile Club, HAK, has published the latest travel advice:

Roads are wet and slippery in the Croatian Littoral, in the central part of the country, in the mountain region Gorski kotar in Slavonia and in Baranja. Please drive carefully in the Croatian Littoral and in the mountain region Gorski kotar due to hail. Please keep the safety distance.

Traffic volume is increased on most roads in the direction interior.Due to reduced visibility, all drivers have to turn on the low beam lights.
