Using long-term meteostations data (1955–2012) in the North-East region of the Black Sea coasts, prevailing regional synoptic atmospheric processes and basic features of wind regime, air temperature and precipitation variability were ranked according to multi-scale concept. Several extreme floodings in this period were considered. The case of catastrophic flooding of 6–7, July, 2012 over the Caucasus Foot Mountains in Gelendzhik – Novorossiysk – Krymsk triangle was analyzed in details. Daily precipitation during 6–7, July, 2012 was compared with the values of monthly and annual mean (multi-year) values. It is shown, that this flooding was anomalously high for the entire reporting period.
Keywords: synoptic atmospheric processes, wind, air temperature, abnormal rainfall, multiscale temporal variability of meteorological parameters.
