This paper presents the results of a statistical analysis of severe bora occurrence at two locations, Split and Dubrovnik, in mid-Adriatic. A situation with severe bora is defined as a period with wind, the direction of which is continuously between 360° and 90°, with a mean hourly speed ≥ 17.0 ms-1 during at least one hour. ln the 30-year period of observation (1958-1987) 116 situations with severe bora were registered in Split. This is four times less than in Senj, on the northern Adriatic. ln Dubrovnik, severe bora is not so frequent. lt is shown that severe bora with maximum gusts ≥ 40.0 ms-1 appears along the entire Adriatic coast, but its duration and frequency decrease from north to south.
