Low pressure area IVAN formed in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the Iberian Peninsula and caused severe
weather in Portugal, Spain, France, the Benelux countries and Germany. Rainfall amounts up to 58 mm/24h and
gusts up to 129 kph were registered.
Low pressure area IVAN formed out of a wave disturbance in the Atlantic Ocean already on June 04. At the back of a
trough reaching up to the Azores the low pressure area moved southeast towards the Iberian peninsula. On 06 June IVAN
moved the front of the trough. Due to strong uplift processes and a diffluent zone in the jet stream lying above,
the depression rapidly intensified to a core pressure of less than 1000 hPa.
