Abstract

The AA. compared May and August 2010 precipitation events that produced catastrophic flooding. Similarities in precipitation characteristics (duration of several days, daily total maximum of approximately 180 mm) can be explained by similarities in the meso-a scale (thermo-dynamic indicia connected with a cyclonic system of Mediterranean origin). These indicia were more significant in May than in August when conditional instability was additionally detected. Obviously more intensive orographic enhancement in the first case and the strong effect of convection in the latter case produced differences in the return periods of precipitation totals. Subsequently, the hydrological response was rapid and particularly strong in smaller streams in August. - (EN)
