Lobster-red Brits are a familiar sight in Croatia but after an unusually strong heatwave that has engulfed much of Europe, sunburnt faces have become an increasingly familiar sight at home, too. That heatwave is soon to arrive in Croatia, where the weather is already swelteringly hot.
Maximum temperatures are expected to reach the mid-30s this week, and the evenings won't provide any cooling respite as temperatures remain above 20°C. There will be a gradual rise within the next week and the heatwave will affect all parts of Croatia.
Cities such as Split, Dubrovnik and Knin have already recorded morning temperatures above 25°C at 7am, the former two above 28°C. People have been warned to take care by drinking plenty of water and staying out of the direct sunlight during peak hours (10am-5pm)
