How many milimetres of precipitation?

More than 200?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30317398




Rainfalls of 110 millimetres are quite usual here in my part fo Brazil.


Usually, we get at least one rain of 110 millimetres every year.

And we don't call it doom...

They're in a place with consistent nice warm weather (some would say hot) and, well, drainage.

You happen to live in a cold place that is largely below sea level.

You can't afford to be relaxed about it. They can.

I live near NYC, we've got the drainage but not the warm weather. I'm fairly jealous of people with a climate like

Several hours of heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the Greek capital Athens have flooded roads and homes, caused traffic jams and disrupted the train and tram network, officials say.

The deluge inundated basements and forced authorities to close underpasses and a central subway station.

The fire department said it had received at least 600 calls to drain water from houses and businesses.

Many of the city's streets remain ankle-deep in water.

"It was one of the worst thunderstorms we have ever had in the greater Athens area [since 1961]," fire department chief Sotiris Georgakopoulos told NET state television.

At one point the rainfall was so intense that parked cars were swept away by racing waters.

"There are cars immobilised on several Athens highways and we have dispatched tow trucks to clear the roads," senior traffic police officer Dimitris Papanagiotou told NET.

Fire chiefs say that they have about 60 crews tackling the floods which they expect to recede throughout Friday.

No injuries have been reported.

Updated: Saturday, 23 February, 2013 at 05:05 UTC
Description
As if Athens hasn't got enough problems, the city was hit by torrential rains today and flooding has caused traffic jams, disruption to train and tram services and affected homes and businesses. Several hours of torrential rain and a thunderstorm have left the Greek capital, Athens, under water. Basements have been flooded by the deluge and authorities have been forced to close a central subway station and underpasses on Friday morning. According to the fire department, they have received at least 600 calls to drain water from homes and businesses, while many of the city's streets are at least ankle-deep in water. Sotiris Georgakopoulos told NET state TV that, "It was one of the worst thunderstorms we have ever had in the greater Athens area [since 1961]." He said that at one point the rainfall was so intense and heavy, parked cars were swept away by the rising waters. According to a senior traffic police officer, Dimitris Papanagiotou, "There are cars immobilised on several Athens highways and we have dispatched tow trucks to clear the roads." Parts of the city reportedly experienced short power cuts as key electricity substations were flooded. Fortunately no injuries have been reported and fire chiefs have around 60 crews tackling the floods throughout Friday and they hope the water will recede. The Greek National Weather Service estimates that the adverse weather phenomenon will gradually recede by Saturday.

Storm Forecast
Valid: Sat 23 Feb 2013 06:00 to Sun 24 Feb 2013 06:00 UTC
Issued: Sat 23 Feb 2013 00:55
Forecaster: PISTOTNIK
A level 1 was issued for the Western shores of Central Italy, Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro mainly for excessive convective precipitation.

A level 1 was issued for a belt from the Western Mediterranean via the Tyrrhenian Sea and Southern Italy into the Southern Adriatic Sea for severe wind gusts, large hail and an isolated tornado.

SYNOPSIS

Pronounced blocking pattern is continuing across Europe as a body of very cold air and low 500 hPa geopotential heights slips southward across France into the Western Mediterranean region. Its stimulus for low-level cyclogenesis finally bundles the widespread, messy cyclonic activity across the Mediterranean region into a dominant 992 hPa low-pressure system, which slowly moves northeastward from Sardegna towards Northern Italy during the forecast period. While dry and cool air is advected southward over the Iberian Peninsula and into the Western Mediterranean at its rear side, a broad and intense Southwesterly to Southerly warm air advection regime develops further downstream into the Eastern Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe. An upper-level jet streak rounds the dominant steering center, pushing deeply into Northwestern Africa before curving northward again over Italy and the Western Balkans.
Meanwhile, a belt of high pressure stretches from Russia via Scandinavia to the British Isles, resulting in a continuing advection of cold and dry air from the East over much of continental Europe.

DISCUSSION

While the large-scale weather pattern seems straightforward, low inter- and intra-model consistency and tricky mesoscale details make the forecast quite challenging.

... Central Italy, Western Balkans...

Forecast models agree that warm air advection and synoptic-scale lift will result in the build-up of low instability (CAPE on the order of 200-500 J/kg) in the warm sector over much of the Central Mediterranean region in the morning to afternoon hours and later on over the Adriatic Sea. Forecast areas of instability at least partly overlap with enhanced deep-layer shear and storm-relative helicity, the more the further South and East it gets. However, chances are that quite some time of forced ascent will be needed to enable convective initiation in the warm air advection regime. Hence, the first storms will probably form too late to benefit from the decent vertical wind profiles.
In any case, the main threat is excessive precipitation when embedded convection moves onshore along West-facing coasts, where orographic lift adds to the synoptic-scale lift support. An isolated event of severe wind gusts, large hail or a tornado is not ruled out in case of more discrete cells and/or an initiation timely enough to ingest a stronger helical inflow. Highest coverage of thunderstorms is expected along the Italian West coast in the afternoon to evening hours and in Western Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia in the evening to night hours.
Due to the complex structure of the surface low, it is unclear how far North the tongue of rich Adriatic moisture, and hence the excessive rain risk, will extend. Current thinking is that the release of marginal elevated CAPE and/or symmetric instability may bring embedded convective debris as far North and inland as Eastern Croatia and even Slovenia. Even though the excessive rain risk per se should quickly decrease after the cut-off of the rich low-level moisture, it is worth mentioning that the combination of snowmelt and (sub-severe) rain might still result in localized flooding in inland areas.

... Tyrrhenian Sea, Southern Italy, Southern Adriatic Sea ...

The most convincing trigger mechanism arrives with the trailing cold front, which will leisurely move southeastward into the belt of strong deep-layer shear (20-25 m/s) underneath the jet streak between Algeria and Sardegna in the morning hours. Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected with a chance to organize into multicells or even supercells, moving eastward and possibly reaching Southern Italy until midnight. Severe wind gusts and (to a lesser degree) large hail and an isolated tornado are possible.
Ahead of the front, a tongue of a Saharan elevated mixed layer moves northeastward until it nicely overlaps with the moist Southerly low-level jet over the Northern Ionian and Southern Adriatic Sea towards the end of the forecast period, resulting in decent but also strongly capped CAPE (500-1000 J/kg). Despite some passing patches of vorticity, convective initiation within the current forecast period is doubtful and it was decided to stick with a level 1, even though the combination of moderate CAPE, strong vertical wind shear (20-25 m/s @ 0-6 km, 10-15 m/s @ 0-1 km) and enhanced storm-relative helicity would be sufficient for supercellular organization with all kinds of severe weather.

... Western Mediterranean ...

Postfrontal convection may be enhanced over Corsica and the Ligurian Sea in the afternoon and evening, as another short-wave trough emerges from the back side of the steering upper-level low and taps into some better low-level moisture in the wake of the Western Alps. Marginally severe wind gusts are possible in Corsica.
Ot [link to www.estofex.org] no severe weather is expected.

Storm Forecast
Valid: Sun 24 Feb 2013 06:00 to Mon 25 Feb 2013 06:00 UTC
Issued: Sun 24 Feb 2013 03:27
Forecaster: VAN DER VELDE
A level 1 was issued for southern Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, western and northern Greece for excessive convective rainfall, severe convective wind gusts, tornadoes and large hail.

SYNOPSIS

A large low pressure area is centered over the Gulf of Genua. Its cyclonic pressure pattern extends from southern Scandinavia, UK, Iberian Peninsula to the Balkan. Most of this area is inside the cold airmass at the surface. Warm airmass is found near southern Italy and Balkan, aloft even deeper northwards into central Europe, with associated cloudiness and precipitation. The warm airmass is conditionally unstable from Tunesia to the southern Balkan with MLCAPE over 500 J/kg, but seems mostly capped over most parts of the Ionean Sea except near the Balkan coast. Significant winds are present in this region as well with more than 25 m/s in the lowest 3 kilometers.

DISCUSSION

... southern Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, western and northern Greece...

Storm-relative helicity is enhanced to values over 250 m²/s² as result of veering wind profiles associated with warm air advection. With reasonable CAPE this will likely result in development of some supercells, with large hail and possibly tornadoes (regarding low-level shear >15 m/s and low LCL height). More general threat comes from storms sticking over elevated terrain especially in the Montenegro region, which can result in tens of millimeters of rainfall in few hours time with local flash floods as result. The precipitable water content is not so high for an obvious level 2, and strong storm-relative upper winds should carry precipitation away from cores, spreading it over larger regions further inland, which should also gather increased rainfall rates from the moist upslope flow. Additionally, severe wind gusts can occur, especially when an MCS would organize into linear segments, or in association with supercells.

Today we have a bright sun and we hope it will dry the roads and pavements. Our yard and garden looks like a camping site, with ruined furniture placed outside to see what can be saved and what cant.
I m still without heating, telephone lines and internet, so I m glad i bought the 3G usb connection for emergency events a couple of years ago.
The road behind our building has been turned in mud road and municipality crew works there too (this is what caused our problem).
Anyway i hope the weather stays dry so we can finish fixing the damages around.
