IRON ARM BETWEEN VORTICE AND ANTI-CYCLONE. The Mediterranean vortex that in the weekend will be located to the west of our peninsula will be hindered in its movement towards the east from a vast anticyclone present over central Europe and part of eastern Europe. It will take on considerable importance with the start of next week, so much so that it will represent a thorn in Italy’s side. It will in fact open an arm wrestling between the vortex and the anticyclone, the latter well extended and dominant over the central states and part of the eastern ones and which will try to transmit its stabilizing influence to part of Italy. The fate of the weather on the boot will depend on the exact movements of the vortex, conditioned in turn by the resistance that the anticyclone will be able to oppose it. Let’s see what will be the most likely evolution:
START OF THE WEEK. The vortex will be stationed on Sardinia in the first days of the new week and an impulse of instability in counterclockwise rotation will branch out from its center and will involve especially our central-southern regions with scattered rains and showers, but with some disturbances that could cross over to the lower Po Valley. The Alpine sectors, on the other hand, would seem more protected from the anticyclone over central Europe, with more stable weather.
UP TO HALF WEEK. The Mediterranean vortex seems long to die and its presence in the west of Italy could last until Wednesday or Thursday, with the simultaneous presence of the anticyclone over central Europe. The central-southern regions would still be affected by a certain instability, at times marked, while the North would remain more protected than the anticyclone, even if exposed to a colder eastern flow which could cause a certain drop in temperatures.
NEXT TREND. Only in the second part of the week could the vortex finally find an escape route towards the east, aiming at the eastern Mediterranean and moving away from Italy. In the meantime, a reinforcement of the anticyclone and its extension towards the south in the Mediterranean latitudes is not excluded in Central Europe. But given the temporal distance and the uncertainty of evolution, the trend could also undergo substantial changes. We advise you to follow the next updates.
