INCREASINGLY HOT AND AFA FROM THURSDAY – In the second part of the week, temperatures will continue to rise on Italy due to the reinforcement of the subtropical anticyclone and the simultaneous influx of increasingly warm currents of North African origin. Between Thursday and Friday the heat will tend to intensify in particular in the central-eastern Po Valley, the valleys of the Center, Foggiano, Materano and inland Sardinia. Expected up to 33/35 ° C in Bologna, Terni and Florence, 33 ° C in Milan, 32 ° C in Rome, 30/31 ° C in Ancona, Pescara and Perugia. The coastal stretches affected by the breezes, especially in the southern regions, are milder, however, in the face of greater humidity.
TOP OF THE AFRICAN WARM FROM THE WEEKEND – Hot and muggy in further intensification at the weekend. On Saturday the first heat wave of the summer will reach its peak in the North with peaks up to 34/36 ° C; in the day of Sunday hot sun in the Center-South and on the Major Islands with peaks of 36/38 ° C in the inner plains, while on the northern regions they could start to lose some degrees for the passage of a frontal line of Atlantic matrix starting from the Northwest on the evening of Sunday.
THE “TROPICAL NIGHTS” ARE BACK – It looks like a weekend from red dot for many cities due to heat and humidity even during the night: in the main inhabited centers, where the “heat island” effect will play an important role, the minimum temperatures will be widely between 22 and 24 ° C. The indices of body discomfort will be further exacerbated by high relative humidity rates, sometimes higher than 50-70%.
