STA, 30 November - Slovenia is in for a couple of snowy days, beginning on Wednesday, right after the start of meteorological winter. Snowfall is expected to start on Wednesday morning and get heavier by Thursday. In central Slovenia, 5-15 centimetres of snow is expected, while in some parts of the country the snow blanket could be up to 20 centimetres thick.
Snow will first start to fall in southern and western Slovenia the day after tomorrow. The coastal Primorska region will see rain and the bora wind instead, weather forecaster Brane Gregorčič of the Environment Agency told the STA, adding that the least snow or rain was expected in the east.
Most of the country will be transformed into winter wonderland on Thursday and likely also on Friday. Snow will not be falling on Friday, however temperatures will remain below zero Celsius in the morning, Gregorčič added.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday will likely be rainy, washing away the snow, particularly on low ground.
