The rain will be heavier in some places, especially in the first half of the day in the central part of the country and in the east, where there will be a northeast wind. At the end of the day, sleet and snow may occur in the highest mountains, according to Tomislava Hojsak, B.Sc. ing for HRT. On the Adriatic, moderate to strong southerly and southwesterly winds are expected to blow later on, which could turn into a gale that can be strong with storm surges.
The interior regions are likely to experience temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius while temperatures on the Adriatic could reach up to 15 degrees Celsius but are expected to drop during the afternoon. On Wednesday on the mainland is expected to be cloudy and windy with less rainfall primarily occurring in Dalmatia. Snow and sleet are expected in high areas of Lika and Zagora with possible showers accompanied by thunder in southern areas. The second part of the day may see partial clearing with scattered rain mainly occurring in Lika and Dalmatia. Winds are anticipated to be moderate to strong at times reaching stormy north-easterly speeds. Furthermore, on the Adriatic, moderate to strong gales accompanied by storms are expected especially at Velebit’s foot with hurricane force winds.
Overall, it is important for people living near these areas to take precautions as this weather pattern can cause severe damage if not handled appropriately.
