An orange warning has been issued for the west coast of Istria and Kvarner, while a yellow warning is in effect for the Karlovac, Gospić, Rijeka, Knin, Split and Dubrovnik regions, as well as northern, central and southern Dalmatia. This signifies a high level of danger to health and potentially life-threatening situations, particularly for seafarers, as well as a significant risk of damage to coastal infrastructure. The public is advised to avoid traveling and staying near threatened coastal areas and to pay attention to and follow the latest weather reports.
Meanwhile in Great Britain, meteorologists are predicting a sharp cold snap with heavy winter showers in the north at the end of next week. In addition to this, a “snow bomb” is expected in just a few days bringing significantly colder conditions and the first snow flurries of the winter.
In contrast to this gloomy weather forecast for most of Europe, Tuesday’s forecast includes mostly cloudy weather with rain and showers in some places on the Adriatic and along the coastline. However there is also possible sleet and snow in higher mountains with temperatures ranging from 5°C -10°C inland to 12-17°C on the Adriatic. Weak winds are forecast with some strong northeasterly gusts.
