• Bad weather, Germany on its knees.

    Merkel: "We will not leave you alone"

  • The climatologist: extreme events due to global warming


16 July 2021 During the weekend an insidious cyclonic vortex from the North will descend towards the Center-South causing an intense wave of bad weather over most of Italy.

Friday will pass with rains and thunderstorms first in the North (especially in the Northwest and Emilia Romagna) and then in the Center (very strong here), Saturday will be a day compromised by bad weather.

Heavy rains, thunderstorms with storms and consequent possible flooding will hit in particular on Marche, Abruzzo and Molise and then reach Lazio (also Rome) and finally Campania, Basilicata, northern Sicily and Puglia. This phase of bad weather will be fueled by cooler winds that will cause temperatures to drop even in the central and southern regions. 

On Sunday, while the weather will definitely improve in the North with significantly increasing thermal values, intense thunderstorms will continue to threaten southern Marche, Abruzzo, Molise, Basilicata, Campania, Calabria and even central-southern Lazio (possible involvement of Rome too).
