Cold weather to hit Serbia over the weekend – Temperatures down to -22°C

The weather on Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be mostly cloudy, windy and very cold. In south, east and central Serbia, there will be heavy snow, while snowdrifts are expected in mountains.

The weather on Wednesday morning will be mostly sunny, followed by snow and rain in the afternoon. Temperatures are expected to plummet on Friday and Saturday to -15°C, or even to -22°C in the mountains regions.

On Thursday, the weather will be cloudy and noticeably colder, with occasional snow and north wind picking up.

The lowest temperature will range from -6 to -2 in the morning, and between 2 and 8 degrees Celsius during the day.

Public enterprise Putevi Srbije (Serbian Roads) announces that trailer trucks are not allowed to use Brzeće-Kopaonik, Jošanička Banja Vrnjci – Stanišinci – Grčak, and Dobre Vode – Stanišinci roads, while other vehicles should have the appropriate winter gear on.

The situation on the Belgrade-Nis motorway is usual so far and there are no serious delays. Travelers are advised not to use the Batrovci and Sid border crossings, but rather opt for Backa Palanka, Sot, Ljuba, Nestin, or Bogojevo.

On 7th January (the Orthodox Christmas), traffic is expected to increase particularly from the directions of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Romania and Macedonia.

On Monday, the temperatures will be somewhat higher, with snow and rain.

A small favour

Since 2013, Serbian Monitor has been offering to its readers carefully selected news about the Republic of Serbia, as a daily commitment stemming from the genuine desire to offer undistorted information about a country that is too often a victim of prejudice and superficiality. From November 2016, this service is available in English and Italian with a growing number of original articles with a goal of providing a complete picture of this Balkan country's economy, politics, culture and society. Our archive is completely free of charge, available to anyone who wants to get to know the country, to study its specific aspects, or to be constantly updated about it. This project will only be able to continue with the help of readers on whom we are calling to provide a small financial support so that we can continue supplying an increasingly expanding pool of information and original contributions.
