Top ten wind gusts
Here we present the ten strongest wind gusts measured at Coastal Oceanographic Station Piran from September 2003, when the quality control of the data was introduced, to this day. From October 16th, 2002 to May 21st, 2003 the wind was sampled for 10 minutes in each 30 minute interval. The sampling frequency was 4Hz. From May 21st, 2003 on the wind is sampled continuously (30 minutes in 30 minute interval). The sampling frequency remains the same - i.e. 4Hz.

Top ten powerful Tramontanas that occur in summer
In Slovenia a word Tramontana is used for a strong northerly (hurricane) wind that blows from the Alps to the Venice bay over Trieste, Slovenian coast and Istra with gusts sometimes as high as 200km/h (usually 80 km/h).
