Quick Reference

Regional term for one of the genera of warm winds from south of the Mediterranean. It moves ahead of an eastward-travelling depression and brings hot, dry, dusty conditions to Algeria and the Levant. To the north, where its humidity increases very rapidly as it crosses the sea, it brings moist air to the coast of Europe.
