Weather: Late October, Italy at risk for flood phenomena and lots of snow will be back, updates
End of October potentially very dangerous on the weather frontLate October with risk of floodswith an increasingly colder climate even with the return of the snow up to low altitude. On the other hand, from a statistical and weather-climatic point of view, the last weeks of October are among the richest in rainfall of the entire year over a large part of Italy: the reason is to be found in the high latitudes where large depression areas (the classic perturbations) are formed which often impact first on Western Europe and then also on our country.
And that’s exactly what we expect for the end of October. Eyes on, especially from 17/18 of the month when a cold front well organized downhill from the North Pole could likely cause arather bad weather wave dangerous for our country. In fact, the unstable currents entering from the Rhone Gate could lead to the formation of a Mediterranean cyclone capable of triggering intense precipitation, even in the form of a storm.
Here we would create a rather dangerous configuration for our territory with a high pressure block on the Balkan Peninsula which, in fact, would prevent the disturbance from moving eastwards, remaining unavoidably “blocked” on Italy. Consequently, also due to a lot of energy involved (seas still very warm for the season, especially the lower Tyrrhenian), flood phenomena cannot be excluded. or in any case very abundant, initially borne by the Northern and Tyrrhenian regions, also extending to the rest of Italy with the possibility of severe thunderstorms And heavy rains.
This depression front, as well as a heavy wave of bad weather, will also be responsible for a drastic thermal drop with temperatures that could even rise below the reference climatic averages of several degreesespecially in the Center-North.
Last but not least, in such a context the snow could come back as well on our mountainsalso very abundant, with flakes up to around 1400 meters above sea level in the central-western Alps.
