Like the rest of Europe, Croatia has not managed to avoid the heat wave and high temperatures, which exceed 30 degrees Celsius. Meteorologists point out that it is five to six degrees higher than the average for the end of June and the beginning of July, reports jutarnji.hr.
“In the last days of June, the first heat wave of this year is expected in Croatia, so DHMZ issued warnings for heat – moderate (yellow) and high (orange) danger of heat wave,” explains Aleksandra Karanac, meteorologist on duty at DHMZ.
“The highest temperature is predicted in the interior of Dalmatia, for example in Knin, where temperature could go up to 40 degrees Celsius.” – they say in DHMZ.
They also point out that on weekends, July 2nd and 3rd, it is possible to let the heat subside, at least inland, but no stronger refreshment is likely as the temperature would still be around 30 degrees, which is closer to normal temperature values for early July.
However, it could still be very hot in Dalmatia in those days, ie the temperature could still be around 35 degrees Celsius, which is a few degrees warmer than average.
Doctors warn citizens to follow some recommendations and protect themselves from high temperatures, which can be fatal for some.
Doctors certainly have a bit more work to do, especially emergency services, so they constantly emphasize the danger of staying outdoors from 10 am to 5 pm, ie not going out if you don’t have to and staying in fresh areas.
It would be best to keep the room temperature below 32 and the night temperature below 24 degrees Celsius, and you should avoid physical exertion, drink enough fluids and eat light food.
