Let’s start another week with the weather that seems to want to test our northern Italy. A wave of severe weather is preparing to break on Monday, July 24, bringing a mix of record-breaking heat and powerful thunderstorms with hail. An unstable current of Atlantic origin is preparing to knock on the doors of our country, mainly involving the northern regions and then advancing to the east and the flat areas. Civil Protection has issued a notice of adverse weather conditions and warns of possible hydrogeological and hydraulic problems. It will be necessary to remain on guard and comply with civil protection directives, especially in regions designated as yellow alert.
Forecast weather conditions in the north
The weather forecasts for northern Italy are clear: starting Monday morning, Piedmont and Valle d’Aosta will be the first to face heavy clouds and intense storms with the clear risk of strong gusts of wind and even hail. During the day, the bad weather will spread to the alpine, pre-alpine and foothill regions, then reaching Lombardy, Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
Liguria and Emilia-Romagna will start the day with relatively clear skies, but cloudiness is expected to increase in the morning, which could lead to isolated thunderstorms.
The Center and Sardinia
Even central Italy and Sardinia will not be free from bad weather. In Tuscany, where the day will start with few scattered clouds, a gradual increase in cloudiness is expected from late morning, with isolated showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon.
South and Sicily: scorching heat
The South and Sicily, by contrast, seem destined for a calm day, with generally clear skies during the day and starry skies at night.
Temperatures and winds: details
The minimum temperatures will mark an increase in the Aosta Valley, Piedmont, northeastern reliefs, a large part of the Center, Sardinia and western Sicily, while significant variations are not expected in the rest of the areas. The maximum temperatures, on the other hand, will be decreasing in the northwest and in the Ionian Calabria.
The winds will be weak and will come from the south or east quadrants to the north, with strong gusts during storms.
state of the seas
The seas around Sardinia, the northern Tyrrhenian and the middle Adriatic will move, while the Ionian will move slightly. The other basins will generally appear moving to slightly moved.
Given these forecasts, Civil Protection recommends paying close attention and scrupulously following the instructions provided. The evolution of the situation will be constantly monitored and it will be possible to find updated information on the website of the Department of Civil Protection.
