Sunniest place on Makarska riviera

Gradac, as whole central Dalmatia, is marked with very favourable climate. Temperature in January includes isotherm of 7°c and 8°c, in area with Mediterranean climate; pleasant and mostly humid winter and dry, hot and sunny summer.

This area is one of sunnier parts of central and north Mediterranean, marked with bright sky, with approximately 2700 sunny hours per annum, and with big daily average of 7, 3 sunny hours per day. In summer, it averages out 11,3 hours, 7,4 in spring, 6,3 in fall and 4,2 hours in winter. This high average of sunny time affects on relatively high yearly and daily temperature of air. Nearly 7,0°c in mid January makes this area the hottiest part of Mediterranean north coast. Yearly, Gradac has around 46 days in which the air temperature is higher than 30°c, and only 7 days with temperature under 0°c.

This suitable climate and flow of warm sea has influence on high sea temperature, with July?s average of 25,6°c, and yearly average amounts 15°c. The local and periodical winds also help to maintain this favorable climate. Among them, the most distinct are “jugo” (south-east wind) and “bura” (north-east wind), that show up during the entire year but especially well during winter months, when their bioclimtic limatic activity is at it’s peak. During spring and summer the most characteristic wind is maestral, which brings cool and fresh breeze from the sea. At night meastral is replaced by “burin” (light breeze) which cools overheated dry land. Rainfalls of this area also have Mediterranean characteristics. In average they amount 810 mm per square metre per year, but they are well dispersed, so the springs and especially summers are mostly dry, while most of the rainfalls is dispersed during autmn and winter season. Snow is rather rear fenomenon.
