A double cyclone could imminently take shape across the Mediterranean, sparking a week of weather chaos for Europe. The strong winds could lead to a snowstorm across the weather. Weather expert Marko Korosec warned about the “tropical-like cyclone” that could develop in the Mediterranean next week.
The cyclone could become “very intense in the Tyrrhenian Sea” which runs alongside Italy.
He said: “Some models are hinting a development of a deep cyclone in the western Mediterranean on Monday.
“Another even stronger cyclone over the Tyrrhenian sea on Tuesday.
“Associated with such intense cyclone, the wind field would result in damaging extremely severe winds in the region.”
The cyclone will maintain a “very deep cold upper core” that could trigger a dangerous snowstorm into next week.
Temperatures across Europe have seen a dramatic plunge amid a cold Arctic blast.
Lapland in Scandinavia even saw a drop to almost -25C.
Before the potential snowstorm, Europe could face mass flooding this weekend.
This could lead to “single figure temperatures” and as much as “150mm of rain” in certain parts.
Earlier this week, a rare weather phenemon emerged in Finland after thousands of egg-shaped balls of ice covered a beach.
Locals were stunned to come across the “ice eggs” on Hailuoto Island in the Gulf of Bothnia between Finland and Sweden.
Experts say it is caused by a rare process in which small pieces of ice are rolled over by wind and water.
