The cyclones are dominant synoptic-scale features of the atmospheric circulation in the mid-latitudes influencing strongly the local weather, in particular causing severe weather events. The Mediterranean region is the most discernible secondary maximum of the cyclonic activity in the Northern hemisphere. Applying some base mathematics and well-known relations from the theoretical meteorology on the gridded NCEP-NCAR reanalysis datasets, an illustrative case study of three very intense storms in semi-automatic way is performed.
