Abstract. In southeastern France, the Mediterranean coast is regularly affected by heavy precipitation events. On 14–15 October 2018, in the Aude department, a back-building quasi-stationary mesoscale convective system produced up to about 300 mm of rain in 11 h. The synoptic situation was perturbed by the former hurricane Leslie, involved in the formation of a Mediterranean surface low that focused the convective activity. At mesoscale, convective cells focused west of a quasi-stationary cold…

Processes leading to deep convection and sensitivity to sea‐state representation during HyMeX IOP8 heavy precipitation event
During the first observation period of the HyMeX programme, the Mediterranean coasts of Spain were impacted by several heavy precipitating events (HPEs). The most damaging one occurred during IOP 8
A numerical study of three catastrophic precipitating events over southern France. II: Mesoscale triggering and stationarity factors
In the western Mediterranean basin, large amounts of precipitation can accumulate in less than a day when a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) stays over the same area for several hours. Heavy
Impact of upstream moisture structure on a back-building convective precipitation system in south-eastern France during HyMeX IOP13
Abstract. The present study examines the impact of the environmental moisture structure in the lower troposphere (below 2 km above sea level, ASL) on the precipitation development, observed in
Remote impact of North Atlantic hurricanes on the Mediterranean during episodes of intense rainfall in autumn 2012
Autumn is the most favourable season for tropical cyclones to undergo extratropical transition and interact with the midlatitude flow over the North Atlantic. Autumn is also the season when intense

Fine‐scale numerical analysis of the sensitivity of the HyMeX IOP16a heavy precipitating event to the turbulent mixing‐length parametrization

AbstractA climatological approach is developed to characterize the mesoscale environment in which heavily precipitating events (HPEs) grow over a mountainous Mediterranean area. This climatology that
