    here the extremes temperatures were 41.1° both days, with a desertic humidity and dew point:respectly 8-11% 6.1° during 25th, and 15% 4.2° during 26th.

    phoen blew strongly, 52km/h!

    here was 28.5° at 850hPa!

    but in Sicily 30.5°! near Palermo, in Cefalù, there was 41° at midnight!

    Amazing Conditions and Welcome to NW. What are the normal conditions the summer in that area.

    Hi Jack

    the normal condition are the Azzorrian Hp and rare Sub-Tropical influence.

    max between 30°-34° and min under 20°

    40 degrees are relatively frequent but not every year.

    think that in 2007 we've had over 40° 4 times!

    frequency and intensity are the caracteristic of the abnormal summer 2007.

    these are the conseguence of the strong meridian exchange

    sorry, but I can't write more, because my english isn't suitable :D

    I don't know how many time we haven't got the same situation.

    we didn't have rain for 3 month, and the fire destroyed a lot of green zone, especially in Puglia,Sicilia and Abbruzzo
