Weather Warning : Severe Weather expected over the Mediterranean starting Friday.

Posted: December 9, 2010 in Meweather

A deep low pressure system is moving south east from north Europe with very low temperatures in upper level atmosphere, this deep low pressure is expected to gradually start affecting the Mediterranean from Cyprus to Syria , Palestine and Lebanon. Severe Weather is expected as well as high winds and thunderstorms, the risk from this storm is the amount of rain that is predicted by the prediction modules, as you can see from the picture in this report, the expectation is exceeding 100 m/m in some parts of Lebanon and Philistine, while the cumulative rain expected is reading at some areas above 200 mm of rain !! this means that flooding from this system is a serious issue and everyone needs to be careful. due to the extreme cold front in the upper level of the atmosphere along with this from Hail storms are also highly likely , so watch out for sudden heavy hail, covering your cars starting Friday night through to Monday night is not a bad idea. this system will also spread across and reach to Jordan as well as Iraq and north of Saudi Arabia, there is also a strong possibility of sudden heavy thunderstorms a across jeddah and Makkah in the coming 48 hours, flooding is always an issue along Jeddah and Makkah area, so caution is advised. this system will start to weaken by Tuesday after noon. if you are able to capture some pictures from the rain of this system in Lebanon or Syria , you can send them to me directly and i will upload them, into the website !! Have a nice Wet weekend !!

    gonna be glad if you talk about Iran as well : ) this time I do it instead of you lol.
    This system is going to effect Iran Saturday and Reaching Tehran probably Sunday Night or Monday, the same system may cause the first snow of the season in Northern Tehran on Tuesday. also the precipitation over many parts of west and northwestern Iran maybe in form of snow.
