Genoa Cyclone with Mistral

Published: 13 February 2005

In this case the development of cyclone started in the Genoa Bay triggered by the strong north upper level flow. At the beginning of cyclogenesis the flow of the cold air was tunnelled through the Garonne Valley between the Pyrenees and the Massif Central and through the Rhone Valley between the Massif Central and the Alps. What makes this case special is the fact that the cyclogenesis was linked to a very strong Mistral over West Mediterranean during the whole period.
