Italy weather forecast 29/10/2018

A low-pressure system is moving north-eastward from Baleari Islands, bringing strong winds and intense rainfall especially in Northern Italy and Toscana. During the day, a cold front will reach the western part of the peninsula, moving towards the Balkans by evening, causing a decrease in temperatures.

During the night rainfall is expected in NW Italy, Toscana, Lazio, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Sardinia, with moderate rainfall on the prealps and Liguria. During the morning, rainfall is expected in all northern Italy and most of central Italy with intense rainfall in the prealps and Liguria. In the afternoon, moderate/intense rainfall is expected especially in Veneto, Trentino, Friuli, Emilia, Toscana, Lazio and Umbria and from mid-afternoon moderate rainfall is expected in Sicilia. More settled conditions instead in the south-east. During the evening breaks in rainfall are expected in Emilia Romagna, Piemonte/Liguria, Sicilia, instead elsewhere unsettled conditions are expected, with moderate/intense rainfall still in North-eastern Italy.

Due to the colder air coming from the west, a decrease in the snow limit is expected. During the night/morning snowfall above 2000-2200 m is expected in Val D’Aosta, Piemonte and Lombardia, instead above 2500-2700 on the Dolomites. During the early afternoon, before the coming of the cold front an increase in the snow limit is expected (2500 on the west, 2800 on the east), instead from the afternoon the cooler air will decrease the snow limit by late evening (1200 in Piemonte, 1500 in Lombardia and 1700-1800 in Northeastern Italy). Some snow possible also in the Appennines in Emilia, above 1800 m.

The temperatures will still be very mild, especially in central-southern Italy, and the minimum values will be reached during late evening. In the morning expected (12-18 °C) in Northern Italy, (14-20 °C) in Central Italy and (14-22 °C) in Southern Italy. The maximum will be (16-20 °C) in the north, (16-22 °C) in central Italy, with the highest values on the adriatic coast due to less precipitation and winds coming from the Appennines and (20-24 °C) in the south, with highest values in Molise, Puglia and northern Sicilia. Finally, on late evening (10-14 °C) in the north, (12-16°C) in Central Italy and (14-22 °C) in the south, with the highest values in Puglia.

Finally the winds will be very strong during the night and morning in the Tyrrenian Sea and southern Adriatic (southerly), instead easterlies and light in the Po valley. In the afternoon increase in the southerlies in the Adriatic, instead in the Genova Gulf strong westerlies are expected. By evening, decrease in the wind speed mostly everywhere, though still moderate in the Genova Gulf (westerlies), Tyrrenian Sea (south-westerly) and central-south Adriatic (southerly).

UK forecast 29/10/2018

An anticyclone positioned over Scandinavia brings quite settled conditions over the UK, though with still low temperatures. However, during the day showers are expected on the eastern side of the UK, from Scotland to the English Channel, instead brighter conditions are expected in the rest of the country. From the evening, an increase in cloud cover is expected from the south-east, though with no precipitation.

The minimum temperatures will be steady, with values between 0-5 °C mostly everywhere (possible -1,-3 °C in the Highlands and Wales, instead 6-8 °C along the coast in southern England). The maximum temperatures will be still below 10 °C everywhere, with lowest values in Scotland (3-5 °C on the Highlands).

Finally, the winds will be easterly/north-easterly over England, southerly in Scotland, and they will be light, though in Western Scotland, especially in the morning, they will be moderate (30-40 mph).
