Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny in Slovenia, with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing in the interior of the country during the afternoon and evening.
After a calmer Friday, the northwestern regions of Slovenia may experience some showers in the early morning hours on Saturday. The day will be mostly sunny, but isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected to form in the country’s interior during the afternoon and evening, with a higher frequency in the Alpine areas, according to the meteorologists at the Slovenian Environment Agency.
On Sunday morning or forenoon, thunderstorms will spread from the northwest, affecting a larger part of the country. These thunderstorms are likely to be intense, bringing heavy rainfall, strong gusts of wind, and even hail. Along the coast, in the morning hours during the thunderstorms, a strong northerly wind known as “tramontana” may blow, as warned by the Slovenian Environment Agency (Ars).
On Sunday, a high-altitude trough with cold air will influence the weather in the country, causing highly unstable atmospheric conditions. Overnight into Sunday, precipitation will intensify in the northern and western regions and gradually spread over the northwestern parts of Slovenia.
