Weekend weather, sudden thunderstorms between Saturday and Sunday: here’s where

The forecast for this weekend

‘Thunderstorms scattered’ over Italy over the weekend. This brief forecast, ‘scattered thunderstorms’, explains the website www.iLMeteo.it, “is often translated as bad weather, as a weekend ruined by rain, wind and gray skies; however, if we analyze the concept better, we see that’ thunderstorms ‘stands for rains of a short duration, while the adjective’ scattered ‘represents a non-homogeneous geographical distribution. In other words we could say’ some short-term rains’ in ‘some areas’, dry and sunny elsewhere “.

“This is what will happen this weekend – say the experts – when in some areas we will have thunderstorms, at times even intense, and on the remaining Italian territory the sun will shine: later these storms will hit where there was the sun, while it will be clear conditions returned in the previous areas of bad weather. Having said this, however, let’s treat storm situations well as, even if they are short-lived, they still represent a danger “.

Antonio Sanò, director and founder of the site www.iLMeteo.it, indicates in the northern regions the main Italian target of the Atlantic perturbation transiting Central Europe over the weekend. In the morning of Saturday there are also strong thunderstorms in the north of Lombardy towards Emilia and Liguria, showers are not excluded also in Valle d’Aosta and Piedmont especially in the Alpine areas; in the afternoon, the unstable fresh air coming down from the Alps could trigger thunderstorms from eastern Lombardy towards Emilia Romagna and Veneto. Obviously, unfortunately, short but frequent showers are also expected on the eastern Alpine mountains and adjacent areas in a decidedly variable context. Since these are scattered thunderstorms, in the afternoon they are also expected in the central regions, with particular involvement of inland Tuscany, Umbria and Marche.

Sunday will again see the possibility of scattered thunderstorms, this time from the North-East towards the Center and also the South. In the morning some showers along the Tyrrhenian coasts, following rapid development of showers here and there, more likely close to the Apennines , on the Triveneto and on the Adriatic belt; some rain could then quickly reach Puglia and Basilicata in a context, as mentioned several times, however, mostly sunny.


Saturday 27. In the North: scattered thunderstorms, even intense ones. In the Center: thunderstorms coming especially on Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo and Molise. In the South: sunny, not excluding local storms on Puglia and Basilicata.

Sunday 28. In the North: scattered thunderstorms especially in the North-East. In the Center: showers or thunderstorms especially on the Adriatic side. In the South: thunderstorms scattered towards Puglia and Basilicata.

Monday 29. In the North: good weather. In the Center: residual showers on the Adriatic side in the morning then good weather. In the South: good weather and warmer.

Trend. Good weather Tuesday except for local downpours in the North, Atlantic disturbance arriving Wednesday afternoon starting from the northwestern sector.
