Freak weather is battering Croatia, with thick snow falling in parts of the country and gale force winds howling over Dalmatia.
Just a few days ago Dubrovnik was bathing in warm sunshine with blue skies and temperatures in the mid twenties, what a difference a week makes, since the Easter weekend the city has been gripped in a cold front.
Temperatures today are expected to reach 15 degrees, or ten degrees cooler than a week ago, and torrential rain is expected all day. Parts of northern Croatia are under a thick blanket of white snow as temperatures plummeted, the capital Zagreb can expect temperatures around 6 degrees today.
Weather forecasters predict that by the weekend the weather will become more stable. The weather forecast for Saturday is for sunshine and clear skies with temperatures around 19 degrees. Whilst on Sunday the forecast is similar although slightly cooler, around 17 degrees.
