Coldest and wettest month of May in Croatia for decades

Written by  May 29, 2019

Rain and grey skies have dominated the May weather across Croatia as tourists hid under umbrellas and the beaches lay empty. And now it is official this year’s May is the coldest in the past thirty years, and the third coldest in the last seventy years.

And apart from the chilly weather the rain has also blighted the whole month with only patches of blue skies and sunshine, and as well as being the coldest month on record for thirty years it could also well be the wettest month since May 1954.

May in Croatia has been very sparse on the sunshine front, and it seems another May weather record could be broken as the months with the lowest amount of sunshine hours. According to meteorologists May this year has seen only 60 percent of the normal amount of sunshine for May.

And the forecast for the rest of this week certainly isn’t promising with more grey skies and rain predicted at least until Friday.
