Dubrovnik Climate & Weather

Dubrovnik Climate and Weather

Dubrovnik has a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Summer days can be intensely hot, but humidity is moderate and gentle breezes ensure very cool, pleasant evenings. Summer (June to August) is relatively mild with an average temperature of around 79°F (26°C) but temperatures can rise to well over 86°F (30°C), especially in the southern region. Winters are significantly colder but they are not severe and at the coast snow is unusual. In winter (November to February) temperatures occasionally drop below freezing point along the northern Adriatic, while the southern coastal areas are slightly warmer. The wettest months are October, November and December.

The peak tourist season in Dubrovnik is in the summer months when the weather is hottest and driest, but the best time to visit is probably September, or May, because in these months it is still warm enough to enjoy the incredible coastline and swim but the city is less crowded and slightly less expensive.
