The Croatian Weather Office has issued a new “heat wave” warning for the Dubrovnik region as temperatures in Dubrovnik have been over 33 degrees for the past week. The extremely warm weather is expected to continue for at least another seven days and are unlikely to fall under 30 degrees for the whole of August.
The public fountains of the historic Old City of Dubrovnik were doing a roaring trade today as tourists and locals looked for some refreshment. And the popular website AccuWeather has also issued a severe weather warning for Dubrovnik “Yellow Warning for Extreme High Temperature in effect until Thursday.”
And there isn’t much refuge from the heat in the Adriatic, the sea temperature in Dubrovnik at 5:00pm was a bath-like 26.5 degrees. Historically July and August are the warmest months of the year with average temperatures around 30 degrees.
