Mid-August has passed and for many Italians it is vacation time. But how are the weather forecasts for the second half of the month? According to Antonio Sanò, founder and director of Il Meteo.it. “until tomorrow the temperatures will not drop, especially in the South they will remain very high with peaks of even 40 degrees in Sicily. Then something starts to change. Already tomorrow, thunderstorms will occur in the North: in the evening over Piedmont, Liguria and Lombardy are violent phenomena are also expected. This is a disturbance that on Thursday and partly Friday from the North will also extend to Central Italy and this will lead to a drop in temperatures. Apart from some showers on Saturday night in the Venice area, good weather will return from the weekend, the climate will be dry and the maximum temperatures will be 30 degrees. Even in the South they will drop thanks to the winds from the North. From next Monday, however, a mini new heat wave is expected which should last a week. In the South the maximums will be 36 -38 degrees, while in the Center-North of 32-33 “. “Looking at the forecasts of the meteorological service of the Air Force, you can see how this week it will continue to be hot, especially in Southern Italy, and, at the same time, there will be stormy rains in the North. For next week, the temperatures will remain in line with those of these days, in general slightly above average. Summer storms will be scattered almost everywhere in the peninsula also due to the humid heat. In short, we will continue to sweat, but, in addition, we will also have to bring out the umbrella “, explains to Adnkronos the meteorologist Costante De Simone, former general of the Air Force and member of the executive council of the World Meteorological Organization. Paolo Sottocorona, meteorologist on the La7 channel, also predicts from Thursday a strong instability in the North with thunderstorms even violent “. “Given that we can speak of forecasts up to 5-7 days because then they become trend lines, in the following days until the end of the month there will still be some cases of thunderstorm in the North, but it does not seem either extensive or intense. This week we will have temperatures still high, especially in the South where for 3-4 days the maximums will still be around 35 degrees and the heat will be humid, especially in Sicily and Sardinia. In the North there will be a slight increase. Southern Italy will have a maximum temperature below 30 degrees, below the average for the period. This drop over the next week will extend a bit to Central Italy as well: we will finally be able to breathe again “.
