This contribution describes the methodology developed for the automatic classification of what are called the Objective Synoptic Processes (OSP), which is based in the analysis of the evolution, during three days, of surface pressure and geopotencial height at 500 hPa. The procedure has been applied over an appropriate domain covering the Iberian Peninsula to obtain OSP for the period July-August. Next, for a characteristic day for some of the OSP, a mesoscale meteorological model has been run at high resolution for the region of Catalonia in order to describe the circulatory patterns associated to a given synoptic situation.
