#Snow and low #temperatures to hit #Belgium over the weekend

Snow Alert

The first weekend of May will bring friskier temperatures back to Belgium, with some regions looking at the possibility of snow on Saturday.

The Royal Meteorological Institute forecasts an overall dry Friday, although it notes some rain could be expected, and estimates temperatures will remain below the 13°C mark.

As polar winds transit through the country, a cold front is expected on Saturday, which means northern regions could see some snow or slush.

Elsewhere, temperatures will be lower than average for the season, and the skies will be intermittently clear and cloudy.

Thunderclaps, hail and showers also forecast, and strong winds could reach speeds of up to 65 km/h.

#COLD & #SNOW returns in #Italy

5th May could become a historic day due to the exceptional snowfall in the Po Valley.

According to the weather data the snowfalls in the Po Valley in May are very rare during May, and can be counted on the fingertips of a hand in the last 250 years.

In Bologna the last whitewashed snow in May dates back to the very distant 1861, the year of the Unification of Italy, over 150 years ago.

On Sunday 5 May 2019, the snow could whiten not only Bologna, but also Modena, Reggio Emilia, Parma, Verona, Vicenza and other places in the Po Valley due to the arrival of a wave of exceptionally late cold air from Scandinavia.

Meanwhile, bad weather will start in the next few hours, between this afternoon and tomorrow. Attention also to the strong mistral winds especially in Sardinia and Sicily, in extension Sunday and Monday also to the rest of Italy.
