Welcome to the Mediterranean Cyclone Centre!

We are one of the few and by far the most popular source on the Internet for Medicanes, subtropical and tropical cyclones forming in the Mediterranean Sea. We track and archive them, and issue advisories at our Twitter account. If you’d like to help us track, join our Discord, located below:

While the site is being finished, outlooks will be posted here.

3 Aug 2021 | 1800 UTC | 01M/FALCHION - ADVISORY 4

...FALCHION CONTINUING TO WEAKEN OVER LAND..

Current location: 45.6°N, 37.7°E
Maximum sustained winds: 25 kt/30 mph/45 kph
Minimum central pressure: 1010 mbar
Moving: NNE at 7 kt/8 mph/13 kph

FORECAST DISCUSSION: 
Falchion's future (or rather, lack thereof) has grown more certain. The major models are now in agreement that the storm will remain over land until dissipation, perhaps with a digression over the Sea of Azov. The forecast track has been updated to reflect this. Advisories will end when the system loses any subtropical characteristics.

CURRENT CONDITIONS:
Falchion continues to deteriorate in appearance and no longer has organized convection, though a circulation is still present. It is still producing broken deep convection, which brings the threat of heavy rainfall and gusty winds.

Names

We created a naming list in 2018, consisting of 96 names. There are a total of ninety-six names, which are used in rotation. If a storm is retired, using all letters of the English Alphabet minus U and W. These are the next 10 names. The most recent name to be used was Falchion, which is currently active as of 12 August 2021.
