Europe, marked by the return - from the early days of the month - the heavy rains especially in the center / north and cold for so many episodes that have brought snow surveys on values and temperatures of winter in many areas of our country and throughout the European continent, from the British Isles and western areas in general.
In the last week, however, the heat is back with the "hot flash" dell'anticiclone subtropical temperatures determined from records in all sectors of Eastern Europe and, for two days, also at the center / north of Italy with temperatures more high compared to the extraordinary heat of last March, above +30 ° C.
Now that April is ending, everyone is wondering what month of May will be and when spring finally takes its course "ferrying" Italy towards the summer.
Surely we can say as a start, and today we have further confirmation on how weather of the early days of the new month will follow a little bit what's happening in the last of April, that is still unstable and bad weather at the center / north and mostly large, plenty of sunshine and mild temperatures in the south.
Europe insist still a movement that will power synoptic weather phenomena in all areas of Western and also in Scandinavia, where the cold will be back gradually.
In Italy, after heavy rain today and tomorrow, Wednesday 2 and Friday, May 4th we will have many clouds and some rain in the north locally strong, especially in the Alps (where it will snow above 2400 meters altitude), with some cloudiness in the afternoon also on Apennines, while to the south the sun will shine with pleasant temperatures, between +24 and +27 ° C maximum in all areas and coastal plains.
Over the weekend, between Saturday 5 and Sunday 6, a further deterioration will affect the north again, with rain and storms more intense and extensive in northern regions, while in the south continue to be hot and the sun shine.
Beware, though, what really happens during the weekend and early next week in the North Sea, between the Scandinavian peninsula and the British Isles, where the Arctic Circle is fionderanno south / west very cold air masses, rarely manage to get this far on Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England in the winter months, then never mind ... It will be very cold in May, also in Scandinavia, with snowfall in the plains area from Baltica and over most of Sweden and Norway , but for those areas is a little less rare, even in May.
Temperatures will fall rapidly throughout northern Europe with severe weather phenomena, related to the Atlantic slope of the disturbance currently located south of Ireland and north of the Bay of Biscay, which stazionerà all week in that area.
The abundant snow falls very flat especially in Scotland, but snow well in England, Wales and Ireland also very locally on the coasts and plains.
This wave of exceptionally cold and snow will extend into the first days of next week, at least until May 10. … We hear a lot in TV news, and no doubt we'll talk about so much more ...
