Cold wind which bites gave the true winter greeting to the citizens of Zagreb who listen about the consequences of snow storms which hit almost all the countries in the region and the areas of Primorje and Dalmatia as well.
The forecast says that there will be snow in the capital and many citizens cancelled their trips for the weekend and gave up from driving their cars or walking through the city. So they probably missed some of the winter scenes that could be seen such as the fountain on Trg burze square. Although the temperature is below zero the fountain still works.
The city services are prepared and function at the highest level. The streets have already been covered by special salt and all the vehicles are ready to start cleaning the streets from snow.
They are all on duty which is normal for them at this time of the year and they will be fully alert during the next weekend, they say.
The weather will be cloudy, windy and cold. The snow will be falling by the end of the day. The north-eastern wind will be moderate to strong. The temperature will move from - 9 degrees to - 6 degrees and on the nearby mountains from - 15 degrees to -10 degrees .
