Uvala Ul in de winter

Uvala Ul in de zomer

An imaginary line north of the city of Cres divides the climate of the island in a northern continental type and the southern mediterranean climate. In our area the summers are usually dry and rain is almost completely limited to thunderstorms that are quite rare in the summer and normally do not appear until mid october. Normal afternoon temperatures in june, july and august are between 25 and 30 Centigrade; later the thermometer drops fairly rapidly to 20-25 C as the daylight shortens. The Adriatic sea has an important moderating effect: only in february a minimum temperature of 12 C. is reached.
The dominating winds in this part of the Mediterranean are the Bora (cool, dry, from northeast), Yugo (warm, moist, from southwest) and the Maestral (weak, from the nortwest). Storms occur mainly in the first two months, only the Bora has a questionable reputation with sailors, as it may also in summertime obtain storm speed without warning. In the winter a Bora can sometimes last two weeks, in summer it normally blows only for one or two days.

The top left picture shows our bay in wintertime, with in the background the snow covered Velebit mountains. In the center the same location on a warm day in August, when low pressure fields reduce visibility and the coast and the island Rab are hidden from view.

The graph shows the average day temperatures for a number of cities in Croatia as they were measured over a period of 15 years until 1999. The yellow line is for Mali Losinj, located at approx. 12 miles. from Punta Kriza.
