Boating on the weekend? Here’s what the weather will look like

What will the weather be over the weekend on our coasts? To help you decide whether to go out on a boat, venture on a small cruise or keep the boat in port, we asked Riccardo Ravagnan, Forecast & Services Manager at Meteomed, for help in revealing what the weather will be like along the Italian coast. Here is his bulletin;

THE WEEKEND BULLETIN
A North African-driven anticyclonic field is stationed over the west-central Mediterranean and will remain firmly in place through the weekend. This will result in a phase of stability over central and southern Italy with great heat. On Sunday a temporary failure of high pressure at its northern edge will favor the passage of an unstable front with a risk of thunderstorms at times intense over northern Italy, the Balearic Islands and the eastern coasts of Spain. Meanwhile, cooler currents will flow on the eastern anticyclonic edge, renewing some variability over the eastern Mediterranean.

WINDS: The anticyclone on Friday will favor generally weak easterly winds over the western Mediterranean rotating from the south during Saturday, with prevailing breezes instead over all Italian seas. Tense northerly currents will meanwhile affect the Aegean Sea and the eastern Mediterranean. Sunday winds rotating from the SW over the west-central Mediterranean, moderate at times over the Ligurian Sea, tense from the N/NW over the Aegean Sea with strengthening over northern Crete.

SEA: Friday and Saturday will be generally shallow over most of the central and western Mediterranean. Locally wavy will result in the Ligurian Sea, Sardinia Channel and Sicily. Rough Ionian Sea on the Greek side, up to very rough Aegean Sea, occasionally rough on the eastern side of Crete. Sunday tending to wavy Alboran Sea, slopes around the Balearic Islands, eastern coasts of Spain, Sea of Corsica, Ligurian and Sardinian Seas, upper Tyrrhenian Sea; nearly calm or slightly wavy remaining Italian basins. Still very rough Aegean Sea, up to rough east of Crete.
