Bura (Bora) Wind

Bora or in Croatian Bura is a northern to north-eastern wind that blows along Adriatic Coast, whose name derives from the Greek mythological figure of Boreas – the North Wind. Bura blows in gusts and is most common during the winter. It blows hardest when a polar high-pressure area sits over the snow-covered mountains of the interior plateau behind coastal mountain range and a calm low-pressure area lies further south over the warmer Adriatic. As the air grows even colder Bura increases.
