High pressure and good weather are the protagonists until Saturday in this early spring, with almost summer temperatures in Sicily, then between Sunday and Monday an intense perturbation could arrive from the Atlantic, skipping once again the dry North-West .
These are the forecasts of Lorenzo Tedici, meteorologist of the site www.iLMeteo.it, who on World Water Day, recalls how "the severe drought continues in Italy".
"The rainfall will arrive from Sunday, starting from the Alps with some snowfall above 1200 metres. The rain phenomena will be ephemeral in the North - he adds - and will immediately move towards the Centre-South where instead we will have a load of bad weather. Between Monday and Tuesday we will return for a while to the season that has just left us: winter will arrive on the Adriatic side with snowfalls up to 500-700 meters and a drop in temperatures from Monday to Wednesday of at least 10 degrees. leave after-effects on the lower Adriatic for a few more hours, but in general then Spring will return".
