Suddenly it seems Winter has arrived. Almost. The weather conditions have changed drastically, using the support of the cold coming from the North Atlantic. The so-called polar cold, which is literally bringing down the temperatures. A truly remarkable lowering, in fact we are already recording values that are widely lower than the reference climate averages.
We will not get out of this type of circulation so easily. If you take a look at the forecast maps, you realize yourself that the baric scheme should remain the same at least until mid-November. Then we will see, but the premises – even looking at the atmospheric dynamics on several levels – seem to suggest a last perturbed monthly decade.
NEVE expected up to low altitudes for FORT MALTEMPO. Here are the areas involved
There is another element that we must consider: the Mediterranean. Despite the fact that it is losing heat, an inevitable process given the period, it still has a lot of energy and it is clear that with the coming cold all the conditions for the development of insidious cyclonic vortices.
The first could develop as early as Sunday, when a new, more consistent polar impulse will be thrown to the west of Sardinia. In the map we show you, an ECMWF related to geopotential anomalies at 500 hPa, we have an idea of the location of the cold core: it should be positioned between the Balearics and Sardinia.
Sharp weather MALTEMPO and SNOW, and again in the WEEKEND. Here's where
The Mediterranean's response will not be long in coming an insidious low pressure area should develop as mentioned. At first it should hit Sardinia, heavily, then the central northern Tyrrhenian regions and part of Northern Italy. Then it could slide towards the southeast, meeting even warmer waters and deepening further. At that point, striking thermal contrasts could break out, in fact the forecast maps suggest a very severe deterioration at the beginning of the week.
This time the wave of bad weather should concentrate more between Sicily and Southern Italy, where stormy storms could break down. We repeat, it is a scenario that will have to be monitored very carefully because if confirmed it could open the doors to hydrogeological critical situations.
