An area of low pressure is developing in the Mediterranean Sea and it could become a medicane late this week and into the weekend in Greece.

A sharp dip in the jet stream over eastern Europe is expected to break off and become an upper-level low-pressure system over the Mediterranean Sea into Sunday.Severe storms hit parts of Greece overnight and with an incoming weather front dubbed ‘Geryon’ expected to reach the country, Greece’s authorities are on high alert.
These water temperatures aren’t quite warm enough for a true tropical cyclone, but with the cold air aloft, storms will follow…The system is expected to intensify between southern Italy through the end of the week and loop over the Ionian Sea through the end of the week.
Very heavy rainfall is expected across Greece seeing more than 3 inches of rain.

Gusty winds and increasing seas in the Mediterranean could be damaging to boats and other coastal structures. Damaging winds may also continue with the system as it progresses northeastward through Greece.
