Climate: AFRICAN TEMPERATURES, TROPICAL NIGHTS and HUMIDEX, that’s why the CERBERO anticyclone will be exceptional
ANTICYCLONE CERBERUS: African temperatures and tropical nights await usThe CERBERO anticyclone advances towards Italy and will be exceptional. In the coming days it will guarantee not only good weather everywhere, but also (and above all) African temperatures, especially in some areas of our country. Not only that: we will also have tropical nights and physical discomfort.
Because cerberus? The name of the anticyclone was not given by chance. It refers to the mythological figure that represents a dog-monster with three headsplaced to guard the underworld (Dante): well, metaphorically the three heads indicate the three main climatic zones in which Italy will be divided on Sunday, July 9 and will see the heat distributed by the anticyclone in another way.
The first band is made up of South and of two main islands: here we will have values above 40°Cespecially in inland areas of Sardinia.
The second band It’s about the central Tyrrhenian areawhere temperatures will suffer a sharp rise, with peaks that can reach the threshold of 37°C.
There third band, finally, is represented by the Northwhere the least hot temperatures will be recorded, but still very hot, with peaks up to 35°C in the Po Valley.
And that’s not all! With the start of next week the heat will turn up even more! As the following map shows, referring precisely to the day of monday july 10, the highlight of this African outburst will be the beginning of the week. just think about it sardinia the thermometers will show almost prohibitive values for our country, with peaks on i 45/46°C (color black) and around 40/43°C in Sicily (dark red/black). It is not excluded that even some records will be broken. Also in the rest of the country the thermometers will gain more points, reaching peaks close to 37/38°C.The maximum temperatures forecast for Monday, July 10TROPICAL NIGHTS and HUMIDEX – And at night? It certainly won’t get better! In fact, the nights will be tropical! This means humidity through the roof (embarrassment) and values that will never go down again 22/23°C over much of the country. In meteorology, in fact, we talk about tropical nights precisely when the minimum temperatures never drop below 20°C.
Speaking of humidity and physical discomfort: below we propose, for the first time, a rather particular map related to thehumidex. It is an index, used in meteorology to describe how warm the weather is for an average person, combine the effect of heat and humidity: In short, describe the physical discomfort. Look, in this case, what is planned for monday july 10: the areas highlighted with color red indicate extreme caution: attention therefore to almost all po valleyin central Tyrrhenian regions and to Sardinia.HUMIDEX Index: areas at risk of physical discomfort Monday, July 10DURATION – So let’s get ready to experience one of the many heat waves that for several years have become constant travel companions of Mediterranean summers, characterized more and more by scorching and often long-lasting parentheses.
If everything is confirmed, it is possible that even this African outbreak will not leave Italy so quickly: in fact, it will probably be very hot. throughout the next week.
We will give you more details about this in the next updates.
