is currently running a strong deterioration due to storms that in some regions are also very intense.
Although the weather has been fairly calm in recent days, the atmosphere still cannot find firm stability. Indeed, now the weather scene has already become turbulent due to a cold air front downhill from Northern Europe than also in the next hours will trigger the development of numerous outbreaks of thunderstorms. The weather outlook will tend to get even worse in the afternoon/evening when most phenomena are expected.
LET’S FOLLOW THE REPORT LIVE:
UPDATE 21:00 – Violent electrical storms and hailstorms are recorded in the pre-alpine sectors and the northern high plains, at these times there are intense rains at times in Milan, Turin, Brescia and Verona. Some thunderstorms also in central Umbria. Things are better in the south.
In the Brescia area, the Garza valley was the area most affected by the storm that hit the province shortly before 6:00 p.m. today. In Nave, the Listrea stream overflowed its banks in several places, flooding several roads, while in Caino an embankment gave way: mud and debris invaded the Caffaro provincial route 237.

WEATHER UPDATE at 13:00 – After a generally calm morning from a meteorological point of view, in these central hours of the day the first storms are forming, especially in the Alpine and Apennine sectors. As the hours go by, the bad weather will tend to spread towards flat areas, also accompanied by heavy showers and hailstorms.
To better understand the distribution and accumulation of rain forecast for the next few hours, we offer you this second map below, focused precisely on Wednesday, May 24. Pay attention to the colored areas on yellow where you can combine up 100mm of rain and therefore the equivalent of 100 liters per square meter. Then it will fall to values between i 40/70mm in fuchsia sectors to later reach gradually lower cumulatives in areas with shades of blue/light blue.
Given the deterioration in the evolution phase, we recommend that you follow the next updates during the day.
