It has been one of the driest summers on record in Dubrovnik, 2017 will be remembered as the long, hot summer. But that period of extreme heat and humidity was broken this morning when the heavens opened and Dubrovnik felt rain for the first time in a long time. Over the past three months only around 3 litres of rain had fallen on Dubrovnik, or as weather forecasters say “almost zero.”
This prolonged period of dry weather has delighted millions of tourists to the country but at the same time proved challenging for the fire brigades as forest fires broke out all along the coastline. In fact Dubrovnik saw records tumble with the hottest ever July day recorded.
But before you break out your winter clothes and umbrellas this current wet weather won’t last. Predictions are that from Tuesday the sunshine will again return and that the rest of next week will see temperatures in the high twenties. And the long range forecasts shows a warm and pleasant rest of September and October.
