Italy divided in two by the weather today 28 June. Charon again and record heat in the Center and South, rain and violent storms in the North. Sun and high temperatures will be constant even in the next few hours from the Center down. In Rome yesterday, with 40.7 degrees, the previous record of 2019 for June was exceeded by 2 degrees and the all-time historical record that dated back to August 2007 is exceeded by 0.2 degrees. Florence and Latina the maximum value was a record. In other areas, a short intense storm break is coming today: the most violent phenomena will hit Piedmont, Lombardy and Liguria but also beware of Emilia, northern Veneto, Trentino-Alto Adige and Friuli. There could be downbursts, gusts associated with thunderstorms, large hail and tornadoes, a potentially very dangerous situation in the next few hours. And this situation, as written several times, is closely linked to Charon’s infernal heat: all the steam, the heat, all the energy accumulated in these days will unfortunately act as fuel for the formation of storm supercells, especially in the humid basin. Padano.An important news to report in the very hot context of Charon which has dominated Italy for about 10 days with oppressive heat. The storm will hit the North, while in the Center-South we will still have the super-peak of heat: 45-46 ° C in inland areas of Sicily are not excluded, 43-44 ° C between Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia, 38-40 Still record ° C between Florence and Naples and almost all cities in this sector will suffer. The values close to 45-46 ° C expected in Sicily could also shake the European record of heat last year in Floridia in the province of Syracuse: on 11 August 2021 we touched 48.8 ° C, beating the previous record of 48 ° C in Athens in 1977. Typical temperatures of Algeria or the Middle East in full June: now climate changes are also taking place in Italy. another 10 days in the South with frequent 40 ° C in the shade and beyond; in the North and part of the Center tomorrow we will have a short cooler break but then the African heat will return until at least 6 July. On the horizon perhaps we see a partial subsidence of Charon in the northern regions from 7 July onwards, but it is to be confirmed. In the meantime, for the next few hours, caution for the inhabitants of the North-West and locally also Tuscans and Triveneti. Thunderstorms forming in the next few hours could be downright dangerous. FORECASTS IN DETAIL: Tuesday 28.
