Big contrasts across Europe



  • Rain has arrived over the Mediterranean, bringing copious spring rainfall.

    This time, we can describe what’s currently going on, using a magnificent picture, coming from outer space and taken last night.

    Here's a stunning view over our Continent, where we can see the low-pressure system that has reached the Mediterranean, called “Vera”.

    A row of clouds that draw a vortex around a low of 996hPa near the Sardinia, in the middle of the night light.

    Meanwhile, blue skies up north, thanks to a strong area of high pressure, called “Odilo”, that’s providing plenty of sunshine.

    As we can see the picture above, further rain is forecasted across the Mediterranean over the next few days, since the current system of low pressure is going to strengthen further.

    Moreover, a huge amount of fine dust, coming from the Sahara desert has been brought by the southern winds. Consequently, rain might be a mixture of water and sand which can give a weird yellowish colour in the sky.
