Coldest Day of the 21st Century

According to meteorological data, this morning was one of the coldest in Croatian history. Split had -6 degrees Celsius, which is record unsurpassed since 1963.

Nearby island of Hvar, renowned for its mild winters, also had temperatures not recorded since 1949.

Interestingly enough, all this unprecedented cold wasn’t accompanied with the sights usually associated with winter joys. Split remained true to its sunny reputation.

Official meteorologists say that, based on the temperature averages, February 2005 was the coldest February in last 30 years.

But I doubt that citizens of Split are going to remember this winter by such data. Having two snowfalls in one year is reason enough.
