Notus

In Greek mythology, Notus was the south wind, brother of Eurus, Boreas and Zephyrus. Though generally personified as gentle and warm, he brought storms in autumn and was feared as a destroyer of crops. His Roman mythological equivalent was Auster, who was the sirocco wind, bringing heavy cloud cover and fog or humid head.
