The Bora (Bulgarian and Russian: буря, Croatian: bura, Greek: μπόρα, Slovene: burja, Italian, Polish and Turkish also Venetian: buòra) is a northern to north-eastern katabatic wind in the Adriatic, (…), Italy.

And looking at the synoptic situation of that day we can see how this wind is produced:

And it seems this lead to a very good visibility and clear air over sea level, quite uncommon to be said!

Ulrich Deuschle has a simulation of this view here:
