Bora in Novorossysk (coastal zone of Black Sea) was investigated by using Regional hydrodynamic model WRF-ARW. We have analized bora event which was obtained in January 2012. The experimental model results are compared with observations from regular stations of Hydromet and own data from AMS during the winter expedition Department of Meteorology and Climatology, Faculty of Geography Moscow State University.Performed as a qualitative (visual analysis) and quantitative evaluation of the results (comparison of forecasting and the real average and modal values of wind speed for the selected area). The results of modeling the wind velocity field is used as initial data for the wave model SWAN (Simulating WAves Near shore), be used to calculate wave height over the north-eastern part of the Black Sea.
