The wave of frost will not spare Abruzzo, Molise and internal areas of Lazio, with phenomena always at low altitudes of 300 metres, low hills”, explains Tedici.
“With the snow comes the blizzard, or snowstorm, with a polar wind: this is because this cold current coming from Russia collides with a disturbance that comes from the Balearics, Sardinia, the Mediterranean and is humid and milder, – Tedici explains further – therefore it will bring very strong bad weather in Molise, Calabria, Basilicata, Puglia, especially in internal Campania where there will be real snowstorms”. Saturday is destined to be “the worst day especially in the south, and here is the first time the strong cold arrives. A gigantic turnaround because” on Friday morning “the temperatures were very high with minimums of 20 degrees in the morning in Calabria, where on Saturday evening the snow arrived even at an altitude of 500 metres, as also in Basilicata”.
