A strong northeast wind in Russia and central Asia.

It is most frequent in winter when it resembles a blizzard, that is, very cold and lifting snow from the ground; as such it is called white buran or, on the tundrapurga. A similar wind in Alaska is called burga. The buran also occurs, but less frequently, in summer, when it raises dust clouds; it is then called karaburan.
