The onset of Amélie whipped through here in the early AM hours. Dumping copious amounts of rain with strong gale like winds.
With rain currently going strong at this time.

Storm #Amélie perfectly identifiable on the radars of rains. Rainbands curl around its center.


1st assessment of the #tempeteAmelie : a remarkable storm?

#Meteo#Bretagne#TempeteAmelie The barometers dive. The center of the Amelie depression will be crossing the region in the next few hours. With -10 hPa / 3h at Camaret-sur-mer (29), the entry of the heart of the depression on the region is imminent. @infoclimat

Update:
URGENT - Amélie storm: 100,000 households without electricity Sunday at 8:30 am (Enedis) #AFP

The meteorological satellite "Himawari-8" successfully captured atmospheric gravity waves! https://iflscience.com/space/check-out-these-orbital-animations-of-gravity-waves-over-australia/ The meteorological satellite "Himawari-8" succeeded in photographing the atmospheric gravity wave that was generated and disappeared and spread to a wide area. Atmospheric gravity waves are one of the major waves in the atmosphere that have buoyancy in the atmosphere as a restoring force.

The 2nd medicane (hurricane like storm in the Mediterranean sea) in 2 weeks has continued to develop since predictions by severe-weather.eu a few days ago that one was building. The last one made its way to Egypt and was predicted to dump a load of rain over there (and i think it did).

It really does seem as though both in the Atlantic and the Med that there's just one storm after another at the moment.

Below are some details pulled from their site and a tweet showing the latest satellite imagery.


Increasing potential for the development of two warm-core systems (medicane) in the Mediterranean early next week

By Marko Korosec | Mesoscale Discussion | 08 November 2019

The progressive pattern across Europe will also bring a deep trough towards the SSW Europe early next week, with a deep long-wave trough pushing a deep core into the SW Mediterranean. Some models are hinting a development of a deep cyclone with the potential of the warm-core system in the western Mediterranean on Monday and then another even stronger warm-core cyclone over the Tyrrhenian sea on Tuesday. Let us take a look over some details on the models.

The pattern over the weekend into early next week supports a long-wave trough digging far south into SW Europe and into the Mediterranean. Based on the latest runs today, Friday, Nov 8th, the trough will likely transform into a large upper low with a deepening core on early Monday. Additionally, this will result in a rather rapidly deepening surface cyclone.

Hurricane Dorian Was Worthy of a Category 6 Rating ...
October 3, 2019 Snip:
Category 5 Atlantic hurricanes are rare. Only 7% of the 243 hurricanes observed since accurate satellite measurements began in 1983 have reached that catastrophic intensity. And it is truly exceptional to see a category 5 hurricane as strong as Hurricane Dorian, which powered ashore on Great Abaco Island in The Bahamas on September 1, 2019, with sustained winds of 185 mph and gusts up to 220 mph. Winds of this strength would make Dorian worthy of a category 6 rating, if it existed. (For those of you unfamiliar with me, know that there is already a Category 6—it’s the name of a blog I co-author with Bob Henson over at Weather Underground, specializing in daily updates of global tropical cyclone activity).

The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, which is used to rank hurricane winds on a scale of one to five, stops at category 5: sustained 1-minute average wind speeds of at least 157 mph (70 m/s). If we were to add a category 6 to the scale, we must consider that the scale is not quite linear. Winds for a category 2 hurricane span a range of just 15 mph, for example, but winds for a category 4 storm span a range of 27 mph. Regardless of this non-linearity, a one-category increase in intensity on the scale results in approximately four times more wind damage, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Storms: 11 departments of the South-East alert, a missing person in the Var https://sudouest.fr/2019/11/23/int
Hail and tornadoes
Friday night, Météo France was between 40 and 90 mm on the Cevennes, between 30 and 70 mm on the Var and the Alpes-Maritimes. Météo France forecasts that the intensities of the precipitation will strengthen in the night and Saturday morning with a stormy aspect more and more present. "Values of 30 to 40 mm in one hour will be possible between the morning and the beginning of Saturday afternoon near the Var and Alpes-Maritimes".

Freak waves flood Marshall Islands homes

MAJURO – More than 200 people have been forced to flee their homes after they were inundated by freak waves in the Marshall Islands’ capital, Majuro.
Swells averaging 5 meters (16 feet) washed rocks and debris onto roads, temporarily cutting access to the international airport at the peak of the flooding on Wednesday.
