Winter on standby with sunshine and good weather. From the weekend and for at least 10 days, Italy will be literally engulfed by a huge high pressure field, the Azores anticyclone. Mattia Gussoni, meteorologist of the site www.iLMeteo.it warns that “during the weekend the weather in Italy will be stable and largely sunny; some greater cloud densification may affect Sicily and Calabria. Local mists or fog banks will limit visibility on the plain Padana “. “The strengthening of the high pressure will increase temperatures that will reach peaks of 13-15 ° C in the Center-South and in the Alpine valleys during the day. This situation – explains the meteorologist – will last also next week, and even if around 20 -21 the influx of cold air from the Balkans will occur, the anticyclone will not let go, guaranteeing total atmospheric stability over most of the regions. Only towards the end of the month, roughly in conjunction with the traditional ‘days of the blackbird’ , icy air from Russia could reach Italy causing temperatures to drop across the country “.
