The snow that fell last night on the Montenegrin coast continued to fall this morning in some places of the Bay of Kotor and the Herceg Novi municipality. In addition to the Bay of Kotor, snow fell in Budva, Kotor, Tivat, as well as in many other coastal cities of Montenegro.
According to the Bureau of Hydrometeorology and Seismology of Montenegro, today in the northern regions of the country snow will also fall, and in the southern and central regions there will be rain, snow with rain and wet snow. Morning air temperature was from -10 to +4 degrees Celsius, and the maximum daily air temperature in various regions of Montenegro will be at around -5 to +9 degrees Celsius.
Snow is a rather unusual, but not so rare phenomenon that is observed at this time of year in this part of the Adriatic coast. The Riviera Igalo and Herceg Novi have been favorites for the Norwegians for over four decades. Guests from this Scandinavian country began arriving here in the early 1970s and the main motive was the warm Mediterranean winter and the healing properties of mud in Igalo. Nevertheless, in January 1974, after long presentation years of a “sunny, warm and favorable Bokel winter,” the Norwegians in Igalo met snow
Residents of the Herceg Novi Riviera, though not many, remember the cold and snowy winter of 1942. One resident says that in her village of Raevchi in Sutorin, all the orange trees froze and died. Oliviera Doklestich recalls how her father told her that that winter he and his friends were skiing through Savinsky oak grove, which is only a few hundred meters from the sea.
Also, in 1928, heavy snowfall was observed in Kotor Bay, which lasted several days. Over the past 20 years, snow fell in Herceg Novi several times, but the snowfall that fell in 1974 became unforgettable, because, to the delight of the children, it lingered for several days.
