weather alert Naples and the rest of Italy where when



As for the weather, do not expect good weather in Italy next week. Over the next few days, a major disruption will hit our country. But as of Sunday, November 20, the weather alert is triggered in at least 10 regions.

The latest updates describe a rather dangerous scenario for some of our regions at risk of severe flooding, explained by ilmeteo.it. And be careful, in addition to the rain and strong winds, the snow will also return to the lower altitudes. On the eye already at the beginning of the week, when from Monday November 21 the entry through the Rhône gate (south of France) of cold drafts and unstable weather will cause the formation of a dangerous cyclone.

Weather, regions at risk

However, the Civil Protection has already issued a weather alert for Sunday, November 20. Campania and the western sector of Molise are on orange alert, at risk of thunderstorms. The yellow alert was also assessed in Umbria, Marche, Abruzzo, Sicily, Calabria. On the southern Adriatic sector of Emilia-Romagna, on southern Lazio, on the western sector of Basilicata and on the remaining territories of Campania and Molise.

The weather will therefore bring heavy rain over the next 24 hours. And, on the evening of November 21, also in the North West. Subsequently, this vast area of ​​depression will attract gentle winds from the south which, crossing the entire Mediterranean basin, will be loaded with humidity. Meteorological experts believe that at this time the “fuel” necessary for the genesis of massive storm cells could form.

As for Tuesday, November 22, the Northeast and Tyrrhenian regions would be particularly affected. Maximum attention to lower Lazio, Campania and Calabria in particular. The weather forecast indicates locally accumulated precipitation of up to 15 centimeters. That would be the equivalent of all the rain that usually falls over an entire month, but concentrated over a few hours. The greatest risk with this type of weather configuration concerns the stationarity of storm systems. This means that potential storms could persist even for several hours over the same areas, throwing all the water that has not descended for the rest of the year to the ground.

The year 2022 which is coming to an end has been a very dry year: both in terms of the 2021/2022 winter drought and the summer drought. From now on, the rains that have been lacking in the previous months are likely to accumulate. The snow will then return to the Alps, abundant and at progressively lower altitudes, with flakes reaching 6 to 700 meters above sea level. Thus whitening many tourist sites such as Bormio (So), Madonna di Campiglio (Tn), Solda (Bz) and Cortina d’Ampezzo (Bl).

When will the weather improve?

Finally, to accompany it all, stormy gusts of wind which, especially on the two major islands (Sardinia and Sicily) and on most Tyrrhenian sectors, could reach 80 kilometers per hour, causing dangerous storm surges along of the most exposed coasts. The weather conditions will remain rather unstable even in the following days. Especially in the Center-South. A general improvement is only expected towards the end of the coming week. It should be noted that the passage of the cold front will leave a drastic drop in temperatures that will make our teeth chatter, especially in the early morning.
