Classical description of Bora suppose the warm air mass in the lee side of the mountain ridge. Also two of the contemporary explanations of this phenomenon imply the same feature: the hydraulic jump with a free surface, and the resonant vertically propagating gravity waves with a discontinuity in temperature and stability. The dependence of the Bora strength, duration etc. on the advection of warm air mass into the Adriatic basin will be discussed .climatologically.
