AGI – In the next few days we will reach the peak of this second African heat wave. The hottest days will be those of today and tomorrow but there will be strong thunderstorms. The team of the site www.iLMeteo.it informs that as regards temperatures, the maximum values in the North will reach 36-37 C in eastern Lombardy, lower Veneto and Emilia (respectively with Mantua, Rovigo, Bologna and Forlì), up to 38 C in the Center (as in the Marche and inland areas of Tuscany, 35 C instead in Rome) and peaks of 41-42 C in the South (as in Foggia, Taranto, Matera, Syracuse and Catania).
All this heat will only give energy to the thunderstorms that will break out tomorrow widespread in the North. Most of the regions north of the Po will be hit by thunderstorms at times very strong and with ruinous hailstorms (such as in Milan, Turin, Lecco) and in rarer cases also tornadoes. Subsequently the high pressure should return stronger, guaranteeing the days of Friday and Saturday mainly sunny.
