Wind & Weather Conditions:

The Club Circolo Velico Lago di Lugano is situated at the beautiful Lake Lugano in the south of Switzerland. In Lugano there are two types of wind. The Breva wind from the south which is a typically thermal wind that picks up at around 1pm in the afternoon and stays until around 5pm with a strength of 5 to 16 knots. The other wind type is the Foehn, a strong northerly wind coming down the Alps with a strength of 18 to 40 knots.
  • The "Wind", coming from west-southwest, linked to the passage of Atlantic disturbances (warm and wet)
  • The "North wind" (La Bise), coming from east-northeast, often linked to high pressures creating "continental" currents from the north. This is usually a dry and strong wind - sometimes violent, and usually lasts for several days
  • The "Foehn", coming from the South, is a warm wind which crosses the Alps, triggering a dry spell in the Suisse Romande (French speaking part of Switzerland) while causing heavy rainfalls South of the Alps
  • The "Day Breeze", during heat waves, is a light local thermal wind that can be felt on the lakeside. It comes from the middle of the lake and runs perpendicular to the mountains during the day
  • The "joran", is a local thermal current - becoming sometimes very violent at the end of the day – that appears usually during heat waves. A Very erratic wind running close to the ground with gusts of wind. It lasts usually from 1h30 to 2h30 (starting around 6 to 7PM) with a force ranging from 3 to 6 on the Beaufort scale.
