No respite, the heat will continue this and next week, with only one small break this afternoon with some thunderstorms, even of strong intensity, and perhaps hail between Piedmont, Lombardy and Emilia. Meteorologist Antonio Sanò de ‘IlMeteo.it’ outlines the meteorological situation for the next few days at the Adnkronos. “Yesterday very high temperatures were experienced, even Rome touched 40 degrees, which is the all-time historical record for the month of June – said Sanò – while the absolute historical record for the city of Rome belongs to August 2007 when it reached 40.5 degrees for a few hours in one day “. “The peculiarity, however, of this heat wave is that it will continue for the whole week and also the next: it is an exceptional situation that is unprecedented, a heat that instead of lasting a day or two, lasts 15 – 20 days. if not after 6 or 7 July, a slight drop that could bring temperatures from 7 degrees above the norm to 3 degrees above norm. This drop – he warns – which will still lead to values that are still much higher than the seasonal averages “. “There are some striking examples in addition to that of Rome where the temperature should be around 30-31 degrees instead we have touched 40 – continued Sanò – there are other cases from north to south Naples with 37 degrees against a seasonal average of 29, Bologna would have an average of 30 degrees, instead it always has 36-38, Venice would even have an average of 27, which seems like a spring temperature because by now we are always above 30 every day, with 35-36 degrees in extremely hot weather “. “The heat will continue throughout Italy, there is only one exception this afternoon: until the evening there will be storms of considerable intensity, accompanied by hail and gusts of wind, it is not even possible to exclude violent phenomena such as trumpets of ‘ air, even if they cannot yet be located, between Piedmont and Lombardy. – continues Sanò – and also in western Emilia and western Veneto. A single event of rain lasting a few hours will not solve a problem of months, and then after this thunderstorm passage will not there are other disturbances for at least 8, -10 days “. “So hot to the bitter end for next week, with a slight drop in temperatures tomorrow due to thunderstorms, both in the northern regions and in the central regions where slightly less warm north winds will tend to arrive. southern regions there are no changes, the heat will continue and will find a new peak between Sunday and Monday. – concluded Sanò – The heat will not cease, there will be a new peak again by Charon, this immense African anticyclone that has expanded and it has reached the whole of the Mediterranean and therefore Italy and that only today has a small crack “.
