MED: Small Cyclone in Mediterranean-Adriatic sea (TLC or MCV?)

#1 Postby DanieleItalyRm » Wed Nov 12, 2008 6:40 am

Hi all,
it might seem strange to someone that I often present some cases of probably tropical like ciclones lately.The point is that this kind of phenomena can occur even 3-4 times per year but they remain unknown to most people beacause they are not observed,studied,classifyed.Only Seldom they reach the status of Medicanes,but most of the times they remain status tropical storm or depression.

This little Storm caused severe tunderstorm and many waterspout over the Adriatic Italian coast and over the Adriatic Croazia coast..I don't think that it is a MCV-mesoscale convective vortex,because there was one little cutoff in the north Adriatic sea in 14 giugn.08,but i am 100% sure,i would be glad to know your opinions.
Sea surface was +24°C (13 giugn.08)

In 19 August 1976,one tropical like cyclone in central Adriatic sea,caused the most relevant floods,damages and deads in Emilia Romagna,Marche and Abbruzzo coasts... (generally in August the Adriatic sea surface temperature is between 26-29°C)
This cyclone caused a famous tornado F3 in Puglia,the tornado di Sava.

That image b4 the last, in '76 looked much like a hurricane with a eye and all, and going from the story sounds like one,
in that picture looks like it had a realy well defined center, and good outflow rather strange looking as well......

I'd need to see a color enhanced IR to determine cloud top temp to determine if this is a TC or not
