Meltemi is the lovely wind that cools us in the heat! It is nearly always here! We can not live without it!

From Wikipedia
During the summer in the Aegean Sea, the prevailing winds of the main circulation are due chiefly to the deep continental depression centered over the north-west of India
These winds are known as meltemi by the
Turks and 
by the
(Skopelitissa; Here in the Sporades the word Meltemi is very much used! Etesian I have never heard!)
They blow from a direction which may be anywhere between north-east and north-west according to the character of the country surrounding the region concerned; meltemi weather is ordinarily fine and clear, the northerly winds tempering the fierce summer heat of the region.

Historically, Phillip of Macedonia timed his military operations so that powerful southern fleets could not reach him - their ships could not sail north while the Etisian winds were blowing.
