Here we go again, the rain returns.
After months of drought, this spring is marked by the passage of a series of disturbances that prevents the weather from getting beautiful.
Today the bad weather comes from the Atlantic and will cause precipitation with strong winds over much of the country. Given also the effects of the intense rains of recent weeks on a largely fragile territory, too built and therefore easy to flood, the Civil Protection has issued a weather alert for 13 Italian regions.
So here is the forecast for the next few hours.
The rains will be more persistent on the northern regions, intermittent instead on the central-southern regions.
On most of Emilia-Romagna the red and orange alert is triggered. The yellow alert concerns other areas of Emilia-Romagna, but also Lazio, Umbria, Campania, Basilicata, Molise, Calabria, Puglia, Abruzzo, Marche, part of Sicily, Lombardy and the Autonomous Provinces of Trento and Bolzano.
Today's weather phenomena, recalls the Civil Protection, could determine hydrogeological and hydraulic criticalities.
The warning foresees scattered to widespread rainfall, even in the form of showers or thunderstorms, over Lombardy, extending to Veneto, Emilia-Romagna and the Autonomous Province of Trento. From early morning, scattered to widespread precipitation is expected, even in the form of showers or thunderstorms, on Marche, Umbria, Lazio, Abruzzo, especially western sectors, extending to Molise, especially western sectors, Campania, Basilicata, especially Tyrrhenian sectors, and Calabria, especially northern Tyrrhenian sectors.
The phenomena will be accompanied by heavy showers, frequent electrical activity, possible hailstorms and strong gusts of wind.
