Port average temperature
The climate along the Dubrovnik Region is a typical Mediterranean one, with mild, rainy winters and hot and dry summers. However, it is perhaps distinct from other Mediterranean climates because of the unusual winds and frequency of thunderstorms.
The Bura wind blows uncomfortably cold gusts down the Adriatic coast between October and April, and thundery conditions are common all the year round, even in summer, when they interrupt the warm, sunny days.
The air temperatures can slightly vary, depending on the area or region. Typically, in July and August daytime maximum temperatures reach 29 C, and at night drop to around 21 C. More comfortable, perhaps, is the climate in spring and autumn when maximum temperatures are typically between 20 C and 28 C.
The temperate figures shown are based on monthly average weather conditions for the selected port. Weather data is not real-time, and sometimes no data is shown for a specific date, month or port in general.
