The study analyses the precipitation variability in Hvar and Crikvenica in the period from 1931 to 1990. These stations have a maritime type of the annual course of precipitation. The minimum value of the precipitation variability in Hvar is in autumn, in November, while the secondary minimum of the variability is in spring, in April. The primary maximum of variability is in summer, most often in July, while the secondary maximum is in March. In Crikvenica the minimum values of the precipitation variability in April and November are even, and the same is true for the maximum values of the variability in September and March. The value of the annual precipitation variability is higher in Crikvenica than in Hvar although Crikvenica has higher amount of precipitation. The location of the stations included in this research is relevant. In Crikvenica the variability is higher in autumn and winter. Monthly values of the mean relative variability coincide in the cold part of the year when the variability is only slightly higher in Crikvenica, while in the warm part of the year, with the exception of September, the variability in Hvar is significantly higher.
