That the SeaHelp task forces on Dalmatia’s vacation island Solta must first free their task boat from snow and ice, even veteran SeaHelp employees can hardly remember. This weekend, however, the time had come: Arctic cold, at least by Croatian standards, with stormy bora and isolated snow showers covered parts of Dalmatia and also the island of Solta with fine snow, which made for rare pictures that we are happy to share with our readers.
Frost also on the coast
In general, the whole Croatian coast is hit by low temperatures. After-frosts down to minus three degrees are expected, but after the weekend temperatures are already expected to rise.
Weather service: short winter episode
The Croatian Weather Service reports for Saturday, February 13, 2021: “Partly sunny in most parts of the interior and in the northern Adriatic. In Dalmatia and the mountains mostly cloudy in places with little snow or sleet. With variable clouds, a little snow may be in the middle of the day and afternoon in central areas and the northeast, heavy in places in the mountains. On the Adriatic moderate to strong bora with gales, at the foot of Velebit and hurricane gusts. The highest daily temperature is mostly between -5 and -1 and into the Adriatic from 0 to 4 °C.”
