wouldn't the described situation create katabatic winds?
Katabatic winds happen in the evening and do not usually create such strong valley winds.

The afternoon winds are anabatic. (I ignored the bit about cold mountains).

More like anabatic winds...

no idea- locally it is called Le Joran- as it get colder ans denser at the cold top it creates - a vacuum. And 300m is a very very long way off shore on a paddle board when that happens- whatever it is called. When you are dead it doesn't really matter what the correct word is. (I have seen dead bodies- blown from north shore to south). A similar wind is called Le Vaudaire on the Léman.

The Jura montains are right behind the lake- and the difference in temps late afternoon can be more than 10C in a very short time- creating kabatic winds indeed- which can be very violent and happen VERY fast.
