One of the worst heat waves in recent years. Caronte seems to want to dominate the Italian scene for at least another 10 days, especially in the Center-South it seems to have no rivals. The African anticyclone renamed Charon has been ferrying us, for days, towards an infernal heat: in the South and in Sardinia we have already touched 42-44 ° C in the shade, but the thermometer will rise suddenly again, and also on the rest of the ‘Italy. The meteorological maps indicate an expected isotherm of 28 ° C at 1500 meters over Sardinia between Sunday evening and Monday, bringing this value back to the ground, in a torrid context, we could still have 43-44 ° C diffuse. Higher values are not excluded, with peaks of 45 ° C, but what is worrying is the fact that this fiery language will invade the Tyrrhenian center and almost all of Italy. Mattia Gussoni, meteorologist of the site www.iLMeteo.it, confirms the possibility of breaking some records in June with the mercury column that will rise up to 39-40 ° C in Rome and Florence, 37 ° C also in Naples by the sea. The greatest danger of this heat wave will be the duration: the hood and the heat could insist on Italy until 4-5 July, with some isolated thunderstorms only in the Alps and in the North-West: elsewhere it will be better to organize ourselves to go to the mountains or to the sea, ready to dive into a Mediterranean which, in any case, is already 5 degrees higher than the average. Hot air and hot water, a lot of energy at stake which, at the first cool gust at high altitude, causes intense storms and hailstorms like yesterday: now for at least 10 days no significant rainfall is expected but extreme drought, present above all in the North, Tuscany, Lazio, Puglia and Calabria will get worse. Perhaps the only good news is that vacationers will find sunny weather almost everywhere for multiple days, but the heat will be unbearable. IN DETAIL Saturday 25.
