WEATHER: from the AFRICAN HOT to the SNOW, from the NEUTRAL SUMMER 2021 to the BURIAN, we are ALL CRAZY for ILMETEO
All crazy about the WeatherWhere did Tigli’s perfume go? Since childhood, the scents of early June heralded the arrival of summer, holidays and, in a word, the freedom. But this year, after a spring complicated by both the climate and the aftermath of the long stretch lockdown dictated by the pandemic of COVID, not even the scent of Tigli is giving us any serenity, and just think that until a few weeks ago it was still snowing at low altitude and our mountains still have the name.
This year’s feature made it even more obsessive interest in weather forecasts, for the weather, in fact. Once they were simply called weather forecasts, today more effectively weather, a word of the noblest Greek and Latin origins, but the substance does not change, Man has always been attracted by the possibility of predicting the weather, at least the meteorological one; however, its form has changed profoundly, from a television program often a corollary of information, today it has itself become information of primary necessity and in some cases of vital importance. Those who have the pleasure and the good fortune to remember Bernacca, then Baroni and Caroselli on Raiuno, will be able to appreciate how much progress has been made in this matter, in fact if until the 1980s predicting the next day was too often a difficult undertaking, he advent of supercomputers reliability has grown exponentially and one-week forecasts have become reality; but it is the mode of use or the means of communication that has undergone the most radical transformation that today we can rightly define revolution. Now forecasts have become almost an “asset” of First necessity for many, so much so that weather sites and the “App” on our smartphones they swarm and multiply, offering us the colorful possibility even to know the exact time when it will rain or where a cloud will be able to cover the sun, as well as an estimate of the temperatures even more reliable than the thermometer itself, forcing the meteorologist to the most incredible stunts to satisfy the most demanding, sometimes pushing themselves too much in there with long-term projections.
It is news of these days among other things, published on Corriere.it, that the Weather is an indispensable passion-obsession for two out of three Italians is that www.ilMeteo.it is always at the top of the national ranking of the most visited sites and Apps in Italy, as well as obviously taking the lion’s share in the Italian meteorological panorama thanks to the ease of use and the average reliability of the data which, we recall, are based on physical-mathematical elaborations result of 20 years of research supported with exclusively private funds!
Immersed and bombarded with information on climate and weather, bewildered by fears of Global Warming, the so-called Global Warming, afraid of Warm African and by the journalistic Water Bombs, cold, but intrigued by the arrival every 4/5 years of the elusive Burian from the Uralic Steppes, maybe we are going crazy, or maybe not, but we wonder: how we did when to decide whether or not to take an umbrella, it was enough to simply look outside the window?
But so, in a delirium information often dictated by our selfish (albeit legitimate) needs, our life has been distorted by that natural simplicity of uncertainty, in which it was mainly the surprise to make us more alive, more happy.
That the next Summer 2021, although crazy, it can somehow leave itself a memory, whether it is a beautiful season, or just a holiday, a weekend, a night, a Stella.
