Weather: JULY and AUGUST, the LATEST UPDATE for the HOLIDAY CLOU RUNS EVERYTHING. WE REVEAL THE NEWS
These forecasts are elaborated by the European center and are sent to us once at the beginning of the month. Since these are experimental projections it may happen that the trend may come upset in the latest update; and that’s exactly what happened for the next few months July and August. But let’s go in order to understand better all the news for the highlight of the summer holidays.
Let’s start immediately with good news for lovers of heat. Already in the coming weeks of Junein fact, a vast high pressure field of subtropical origin will be able to impose itself more and more significantly on the Mediterranean basin: if this is confirmed, we expect a greater atmospheric stability from North to South and especially, thermal values in marked increase.
In short words, summer will start to get serious.
The latest ones confirm this trend seasonal cards of the European Center that for the next month of July they see anomalies of temperatures up to + 1 / 1.5 ° C compared to climatic averages of reference (1993-2016). The main cause of these anomalies will be the infamous African anticyclone that sends hot air masses with high humidity levels from the Sahara Desert. This could likely translate to heat waves coming from Africa, absent or almost until these weeks, with peaks ready to splash well over 35 ° C in Valpadana, inland areas of the two Major Islands and on part of the Central South. The surplus of heat and the growing humidity in the lower layers could provide the fuel needed for the development of massive storm cells whenever the drafts of fresher air and unstable will be able to breach the anticyclone. Most at risk in these cases will be the Northern regions, more subject to the violent temporal due to thermal contrasts.
In spite of what was estimated from the last update, the juicy Announcements that emerges from the last projection concerns in particular the month of August, traditionally the highlight of Italian holidays: well, it seems that we will have to deal with temperatures well above the average of about + 1 ° C: consequently, it is reasonable to expect a rather hot month, especially at Center-North. Slightly different speech for the South and for the two major islands, where the anomalies would be more contained (+ 0.5 ° C compared to the reference average).
While there is a certain margin of uncertainty, the above it’s all true; these are not far-fetched predictions, but one of the main ones scenarios proposed by the very authoritative European Center.
Temperatures for the month of July: up to 1.5 ° C above average
