Weather alert: Notice of the Civil Protection for intense thunderstorms and hail on 4 regions; let’s see where
National civil protection alert Cold air infiltrations at high altitudes, coming from the North Atlantic, will determine marked atmospheric instability between today and tomorrow. Showers and scattered thunderstorms will affect the Alpine sectors in general and, in particular tomorrow, also the flat areas adjacent to them, with phenomena which, considering the high temperatures reached in these days, may also be particularly intense locally.
On the basis of the available forecasts, the Department of Civil Protection, in agreement with the regions involved – which are responsible for activating the civil protection systems in the territories concerned – has issued a warning of adverse weather conditions which extends the previous ones. The weather phenomena, impacting on the different areas of the country, could determine hydrogeological and hydraulic criticalities which are reported, in a national summary, in the national criticality and alert bulletin which can be consulted on the Department’s website (www.protezionecivile.gov.it).
