|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.
