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.

Current location: 45.4°N, 36.6°E

Falchion continues to lack deep convection and has now become a remnant low. This is the last advisory. The exposed LLC is drifting slowly SW and this motion will continue through dissipation over Crimea. 

Falchion is producing light rain over the southern Sea of Azov, neighboring Russia, and eastern Crimea, and this will continue until Falchion dissipates completely.

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.
