Notus is the South Wind, one of the four Anemoi. He was the wet, storm-bringing wind of late summer and early autumn. Notos dwelt in Aithiopia, the southernmost realm in the geography of myth.
As his brother, Boreas the North Wind resides in Quebec (the oldest Northern American settlement), Notus may reside in one of the older Southern American settlements.
Notus' winds are heavy and moisture filled, creating fog and mists. His Roman counterpart is Auster. Notus like Eurus is not featured very prominently in mythology as Zephyrus and Boreas are.
