Re: July too late to head to Croatia from Turkey?
and I forgot something more and could not edit post...
I should mention Bura (Bora) in earlier post.If there is any chance that you are still in the Adriatic at the beginning of september, you should be worried about Bura (Bora). Bora is usualy winter wind but sometimes can start blowing at the beginning of september.
It vertically descends the slopes of the coastal mountains and moving towards the sea. It thus creates dust clouds that reduce visibility. It rarely blows for more than three days, but blows in gusts and therefore might be very severe and unexpected, so, if you have not encountered Bora so far, I advise you to reach the nearest harbour. The areas where some of the strongest Bura winds occur are: Trieste Bay, Velebit channel famous for the Bora of Senj), Vinodolski channel, Bay of Novigrad, areas around Sibenik, Split (in particular Vrulje near Omis), Makarska – lowlands of Biokovo, Zuljana Bay on the Peljesac peninsula, River Neretva estuary, Risan Bay in Boka (Montenegro). On the contrary, areas where some of the mildest Bura winds occur are: western coast of Istria, southern area of Biokovo stretching towards Trogir, from the coast of Poljice to Dugi Rat, as well as the coast of Montenegro. In short, it might be said that where coastal hilltops are lower than 600 meters or more than 4 kilometres from the coast, the mildest Bura winds occur.
