Hurricane force downslope Bora winds in Kvarner area, Croatia tomorrow

A dangerous wind event is developing along the eastern Adriatic and eastern Ligurian coast tonight and tomorrow, as tightening pressure and temperature gradients result in very strong downslope Bora winds. The event will develop across the classic “Bora areas” e.g. from Apennine mountains into the Ligurian sea and from W Slovenia across the Kvarner area and Dalmatia in Croatia. Based on the latest high-resolution models, wind gusts could reach hurricane force strength and locally exceed 200 km/h – especially in the Kvarner area around the island of Pag and along the steep slopes east of Kvarner bay. Stay alert for dangerous weather conditions as travel will be disrupted and many roads closed in the area.
