About Bora wind:
The bora is a cold and typically very dry and often gusty katabatic wind (fall-wind) from the north-east. Bora winds can occur anytime during the year. However, the peak frequency occurs in the cold season (November – March). The bora is most common blowing down from the mountains on the eastern side of the Adriatic Sea where it flows mainly from the northeast through gaps in the Dinaric Alps. The strongest winds occur along the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea from Trieste (Italy) to the Albanian border. It often reaches speeds of more than 100 km (60 miles) per hour and has been known to knock people down and overturn vehicles. It can reach speeds over 220 kilometres per hour.
There are two primary weather patterns associated with the bora and both are locally classified as being a white bora and a black bora.
The white bora is basically a dry and very gusty wind due to its katabatic nature. A white bora is characterized by cold, clear weather and good visibilities in the lee of the coastal mountains, while thick clouds associated with up-slope motions are found on the mountain crests.
Black bora winds are less gusty than those in a white bora, but might bring substantial amounts of rain or snow to the region. With the cyclonic pattern, the black bora is often accompanied by low clouds and reduced visibilities associated with rain and/or drizzle.
