It certainly felt like summer had come early to Dubrovnik today, blazing sunshine and clear blue skies made for rising temperatures. At 3 o’clock this afternoon in Dubrovnik a mercury breaking 26.6 degrees was measured which is a new record temperature for the month of March in Dubrovnik.
The previous record was not only broken it was shattered, the warmest March day until now was on the 26th of March 1977 when temperatures hit 23 degrees.
And it wasn’t only Dubrovnik that was sunbathing today, a warm front with an unusually warm north wind brought high temperatures to the whole of Dalmatia. Split also had record breaking temperatures as midday saw thermometers rising to 24.1 degrees a new record for March.
