The paper presents an overview of severe storms and a reconstruction of periods with their reiterative occurence in sub-mediterranean Slovenia in the warm half of the year during the so-called pre-instrumental period. The data were gathered in secondary and tertiary historical sources, chronicles first and foremost. The presented chronology does not provide a complete reconstruction because of insufficient data, yet it offers a basic insight into the periods of frequenter occurrence of this these phenomena. Outstanding are the 17th and the 18th centuries, especially their fist halves whose weather conditions rank among the most unfavourable in the last millennium. In addition to severe winters with damages done by frosts, dry or too wet summers, 12 violent storms in the 17th century and 16 in the 18th century caused great damage and considerably aggravated the conditions of living. The occurence of storms in the fist halves of the 17th and the 18th centuries was equal to that at the end of the 20th century, when frequenter occurence of such weather extremes is mainly believed to be caused by the general warming of the atmosphere. - (IKR)
