#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.
