Wind Rose

Burin – Burin is the night thermic wind that blows from land to the sea. It blows only near the shore, from sun set to sun rise, from a direction between north-northeast (NNE) and east-northeast (ENE).
Burja – Burja is one of the most famous and for Adriatic typical wind. It is dry, cold and jerky wind. It creates sharp waves that break up and foam. Most commonly it blows from northeast (NE), but also from any other direction between north (N) and east (E). It is a result of two areas of air pressure above the Central Europe and Adriatic or Mediterranean. It can be also a local wind, when the air above the inner land is cold and it rolls down from the mountains to the sea. When Burja is local, it can start suddenly, it does not last long, but can be very strong. Burja blows the whole year through, but more often in the winter. It can blow few hours (especially in the summer), few days or a week or two (especially in the winter). The most famous areas with Burja are the Gulf of Trieste, Kvarner, the doors of Senj/Senjska vrata, Klis, Vrulje at Makarska.
Levante – in the northern Adriatic Levante is temporary, humid wind that blows from the east (E). It is typical for the winter. It is formed in a calm weather and changes to Burja or Jugo.
Jugo – warm and humid wind that blows from direction between east-southeast (ESE) and south-southeast (SSE). It is accompanied by cloudy weather, often also with rain. In the southern Adriatic it is stronger and also blows more often, in the northern Adriatic it usually blows from March to June. The average strength of Jugo is 4-5 Beauforts. In summer it blows up to three days, and in winter up to nine days, with breaks also up to three weeks. Jugo stirs the sea strongly, but the waves are more symmetrical, constant and longer than the waves, created by Burja, therefore they do not break so much. Jugo is not so dangerous as Burja, because it blows constantly and does not start so suddenly, it becomes stormy only on the third day after it starts blowing.
Oštro – temporary wind that blows from the south (S).
Maestral – pleasant daily thermic wind that blows near the shore. It blows from sea to land. On the Slovenian shore it blows from the direction west-northwest (WNW), and on the most of the Croatian Adriatic sea from northwest (NW), and on the southern Adriatic even from the west (W). It starts blowing after 10 AM, it achieves the highest strength at 2 PM (around 4 Beauforts) and stops blowing before the sun sets.
Lebič ali garbin – stormy southwest (SW) wind, accompanied by heavy rain. In the summer it is formed as a local thermic storm. In other seasons it has typical cyclone characteristics. It creates big waves and endangers the ports that are not protected from the southwest winds.
Ponente – stormy wind that blows from the west (W).
Tramontana – temporary wind blowing from the north. It blows in any season, it can be strong and dangerous. Usually it changes to Burja.
Marines, yacht clubs: The most famous on the Slovenian shore are marines in Izola and Lucija, but you can find smaller ports or bays with moorings, where you can leave a boat, along the whole Adriatic shore.
