Rainy days are rare; the city of Cetinje is the wettest place with 200 millimeters (8 inches) of average rainfall. It is dry on the coastline, only 74 millimeters (3 inches) of rainfall in Budva, 83 millimeters (3.3 inches) in Bar, 96 millimeters (3.8 inches) in Kotor.

The average day temperature along the coast is about 26 °C (79 °F), at night — about 15 °C (60 °F). And the sea did not cool down — 24 °C (75 °F).
