Heat wave continues to bring dangerously hot weather to Italy

An African anticyclone has brought a new heat wave to Italy, with temperatures reaching 40 degrees in the south and close to that in the center.

A wave of thunderstorms will break the heat in the north.


Bologna, Bolzano, Campobasso, Florence, Frosinone, Latina, Palermo, Perugia, and Rieti are under an orange heat alert, the second highest level.


A yellow signal for severe weather and flooding has been issued for Piedmont’s northern area.


On Thursday, July 8th, the weather will be largely bright and pleasant, but in the north, numerous thunderstorms will form, even in the plains, with a decrease in temperatures caused by the passage of an Atlantic disturbance (the n.3 of July) that will rapidly sweep the northern areas.


Sunny days are predicted in the latter part of the week, but the heat will be more manageable owing to the comparatively cold breezes that will accompany the disturbance.

Love Abruzzo: The fascination of folkloric traditions and unique wild fauna

  Abruzzo is a mystery, as it is neither part of the fashion-conscious, Ferrari-producing north nor the siesta-loving, anarchic south.
