Weather: EXCEPTIONAL HEAT with SHOCK Temperatures up to 46°C! Let’s see how long it will last and the latest news!
Strongly increasing heat in the coming daysHot keeps going up! In the coming days, temperatures will continue to rise until reaching peaks even close to 46°C in some areas of our country. But how long will this African fire last? The latest updates, just arrived, have brought some news.
ALL “BLAME” of CERBERUS – in mythology cerberus it is the three-headed dog-monster sung by Dante in his Divine Comedy and placed to guard the Underworld: for the African anticyclone is distributing the heat in different ways over three areas of Italy, metaphorically represented by the three heads: the first area is that of the South and the Greater Islands; the second zone is represented by central Italy, especially the Tyrrhenian belt; the third zone is the North.
HEAT RISE from MONDAY 10 – Precisely at the beginning of the week, a new pulsation of the anticyclone is expected, a “hot bubble” of subtropical origin that rises from North Africa, with important consequences for Italy that will result in an absolutely abnormal climatic phase.
As shown on the map below, referring to the day of wednesday july 12maximum temperature peaks of up to 36-37°C in the northern plains, up to 38°C in the center and even (color black) up to more than 42°C in the two largest islands (with peaks of more than 45°C in sardinia).The maximum temperatures forecast for Wednesday, July 12ATTENTION TO THE HEAT/MOISTURE MIXTURE – The real discomfort, however, is not only caused by heat, but high temperatures play a fundamental role humidity rate that only improves the level of physical discomfort.
Speaking of humidity and physical discomfort: below we propose 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, combining the effect of heat and humidity: in a nutshell, it describes the physical discomfort. See what’s planned for monday july 10: color red indicates extreme caution: therefore, pay attention to almost all po valleyto the regions Tyrrhenian power stations and to sardinia.Umidex: an index that describes how warm the climate is for an average personDURATION – How long will this hot phase last? There are some novelties, but for lovers of the open air they are certainly not the best, at least for the central-southern regions and for the two largest islands: here the great heat seems destined to last even throughout the course of the week that ends to begin
Slightly different speech on the other hand for the North, where in the middle of the week, to be precise as of Wednesday July 12, the high pressure could partially lose energy favoring a greater interference of the storm first in the reliefs and thursday 13 also in some sections of the Po Valley. This would lead to a thermal decrease, although in fact quite limited and probably temporary.
We will give you more details in our next updates.
