Argalasti / Paltsi beach, Greece waterspouts – July 15, 2014

Greece saw some of the best waterspouts this season today. Several large waterspouts formed offshore Argalasti / Paltsi beach, Greece this morning. The biggest spectacle was made by twin massive waterspouts, while it remains unclear whether several additional isolated waterspouts also formed.

The area was under a cold core upper low that was translating SE, producing steep low level lapse rates. Combined with high sea surface temperature of 26 °C (data for nearby Ilias Madraki, Skiathos island) today, the conditions were very favourable for waterspouts.
