Weather: 12/16 JULY, there are BIG news! You risk the first SERIOUS STOP in the SUMMER. We explain why
12-16 July: possible disturbed nucleus towards Italy filled with thunderstorms and hailSomething big is boiling in the pot. After weeks of sometimes stifling heat over much of Italy, interspersed only with a stormy break last Sunday, the main weather models have begun to smell a important turning point towards the half of the month.
In particular, great news is expected for the period included between 12 and 16 July when a deep depression, filled with fresh air and storms, it could cause a deep wound to the summer that would result in the first real pit-stop seasonal.
But let’s go in order by analyzing the latest updates of ours Official APP.
If the African anticyclone dominated our country at the beginning of summer, the situation was very different on the Central-Northern Europe, frequently hostage of perturbations with consequent torrential rains, hail and even tornadoes (the most recent only a few days ago over the Czech Republic). The cause must be sought in one semi-permanent low pressure which is stationed at high latitudes and which on several occasions sends unstable impulses which then interact with the hot and humid currents rising from North Africa, causing upheavals.
Well, in the next few days one of these perturbed and cold nuclei (cut-off in technical terms) it will begin its journey by moving from Greenland to the heart of Europe, continuously fed and propelled by polar sea currents.
The arrival on the Mediterranean basin of this imposing and vast area of low pressure is expected atstart of next week and would result, if confirmed, a drop in temperatures and, above all, it could trigger awave of bad weather not to be underestimated.
In fact, as often happens after “African flare-ups” of a certain consistency, large quantities of humidity and heat stagnate in the lower layers of the atmosphere, or “potential energy” for the development of extreme weather events. Subsequently, at the first fresh and unstable gust at high altitude, the convective motions (hot air rising) favor the formation of particularly violent thunderstorms, with high risk of hailstorm and in some cases, rarer, even of tornadoes.
So what consequences will our country risk next week? Heavy rainfall would hit the North first, as early as Monday 12 July, and then spread over the days to the rest of Italy as well.
For the details it is obviously necessary to wait a few more days, given the time gap still too high. Having said that we advise you to stay updated, theestate could really undergo the first serious stop.
