Pulenat - The Dangerous Mind

The Pulenat is a wind from the west and is most dangerous when the Jugo suddenly turns direction towards the south all the way to the west.

Although it blows briefly and not too powerfully, at sea it raises big waves of a calm sea. These long, big waves, which suddenly grow in the channels and small harbours and coves, can sometimes create cause great damage.

After this strong westerly wind (also known as the Pulentada) in the Northern Adriatic a powerful Bura can also start to blow.
