Mistral diagram

Pressure Difference Toulon - Amberieu in hPa

Pressure gradient Toulon - Amberieu in hPa

The Mistral is a very strong wind that often blows in South France. It blows from north-northwest down the Rhône Valley and gets stronger on its way to the Mediterranean coast.

Its intensity is dependent on the pressure difference: if there is a pressure difference exceeding 5hPa between Amberieu and Toulon, one has to face strong winds, particularly in Provence and Camargue.

The forecast is based on model output statistics (MOS) by MeteoGroup and is updated every hour.
