STA, 5 April 2021 - Unseasonably cold temperatures are expected across Slovenia in the coming days as a blast of Arctic air that has spread across much of Europe reaches the country. Significant amounts of snow are possible, even at lower altitudes, according to the Environment Agency.
Temperatures will be just below zero Tuesday morning, except in Alpine north-western Slovenia, where the mercury could drop as low as -8. During the day if will be between -2 and 0, up to 4 degrees on the coast.
Strong snow is expected to start in the morning, bringing 5-15 centimetres of snow at lower altitudes, up to 25 in south-central Slovenia. The east should get about five centimetres.
By the afternoon the snowing will die down and it will be clear. On Wednesday scattered showers are possible.
The low temperatures are expected to severely affect agriculture, as widespread frost is forecast.
