Adriatic Winds

During the summer months the winds blow relatively lightly. There are 3 dominant winds. 

Maestral 

Blows mainly from the NW.
Maestral is a sailor friendly wind, brining clear skies and pleasant days.
It frequently blows from the beginning of June to September, usually beginning at 10:00, reaching 3-5 Beaufort, and dying away at sunset.

Široko / Jugo 

Blows mainly from S-SE. Široko/Jugo is the opposite of the Maestral, not only in direction but also brining sultry weather, clouds, storms and uncomfortable seas. At times (mainly in the winter) it can reach gale force, but it rarely blows during summer time (June to September). 

Bura 

Blows mainly from N-NE. Bura can be very dangerous.
It rarely lasts longer than a day in summer time and brings fine weather as the barometer rises.
