Bad weather arriving on the weekend 23-24 October, flood risk: here’s where

Intense bad weather weekend on the southern regions on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 October, due to a cyclonic vortex that could then turn into a Medicane – a Mediterranean hurricane – with heavy effects on Italy. Mattia Gussoni, meteorologist of the site announces that in the South an intense deterioration is expected starting from Sunday. A cyclone will reach the southern seas of Sicily causing the weather to deteriorate strongly first on the island and then on Tyrrhenian Calabria. Abundant or very abundant rainfall is expected in these regions from the afternoon / evening of the holiday, which could cause sudden flash floods, first in the province of Palermo and Trapani, then in Catania and Syracuse and then in Reggio Calabria and Catanzaro. In the Center-North, on the other hand, the meteorological scenario will be calmer, with greater sunshine on most of the sectors.

With the beginning of next week the cyclone will move towards the Ionian Sea with the risk that it will turn into a dangerous Medicane: this term derives from the fusion of the English words MEDIterranean hurriCANE, literally “Mediterranean hurricane” because of the physical characteristics of the structure atmospheric reminiscent of the “monsters” that are formed on the oceans. If this were to materialize, the bad weather will become really heavy especially on eastern Sicily and Ionian Calabria, which will be lashed by winds with gusts up to 100 km / h and heavy and persistent rains for over 24-48 hours.


Saturday 23. In the north: rain showers in Emilia and lower Veneto, local mists in the plains. In the center: more rain in the Adriatic and upper Lazio, worse in southern Sardinia. In the south: rain showers arriving in Basilicata, towards late evening it worsens strongly on Palermo and Trapani.

Sunday 24. In the north: sunny. Center: many clouds over Abruzzo and Molise, it worsens strongly in Sardinia. In the south: rains on Cilento, Basilicata, Ionian Calabria, then seriously worsens on Palermo, Trapani and Catania.

Monday 25: in the North: clear or partly cloudy skies. Isolated mists on the lowland areas. Center: scattered rainfall. South: severe bad weather in all regions, risk of storms in the Ionian areas.
