    Hi,

     

    I start a topic on the weather in Italy, focusing on the weather in the city of Siena and in Tuscany.

     

    Italy has a very complex climate. The position on Mediterranean Sea and the intricate orography of its territory makes forecast very difficult and sometimes unpredictable also in the very short range.

    As you can see in the map town of Siena is situated in the centre-north Italy, in the heart of Tuscany, 50 km south of Florence, the capital of Tuscany, and 185 north to Rome. Italy's capital.

    Siena' centre(where I live) is located at the altitude of 310-360 meters and was build majorly in the Middle Age on three hills. 

     

    The weather is mild. Summer is hot and dry. Autumn can be very wet and rainy, Winter cool but very very rarely cold. Snow falls 1-3 times a year. The mean in 61-90 was about 20-25cm per years, in the last two decades the mean dropped to 10cm per years.

    The coldest month is January with a Mean Temperature of +5°C, the hottest is July with a Mean T. of +22.2°C, the yearly mean. Temperature is 13.2°C

    This datas are based on 61-90 mean of Siena's University station, located in the center of the town, 348 m.

    SIENA LIVE 11 p.m

     

    T +7.4°C partly cloud.

     

    Today extremes:

    MIN: +3.2 C°

     

    MAX: +13.2°C

     

    Another mild day, of a very very mild winter(for now). Many people talks about this, in Siena and in the entire Italy. There isn't snow in the Alps, except a little bit above 1500-2000 meters, and we can find the same situation in the Appennins. And this is very very very uncommon in January.

    Something could change in the next weekend...we hope so. :help:

    What a great thread, thank you!  I shall read this with interest. 

     

    I have family in the north of Italy and they are all concerned at the lack of snow.

    Thank you very much Soaring Hawk.

    Something is going to change from Friday! 

    Models suggests a drop of NAO Index from highly positive values to neutral or weakly negative , with a braking of the westerlies in the Atlantic Ocean.

    So a Through(Saccatura in Italian), should have open way to the Mediterranean Sea. Initially it will be a little bit occidental dinamic, with a mild/warm breathe, but wet then the estshift of the Through, we wait for a cooler Maritime Polar Air.

     

    On Friday some snow is going to fall on the Alps, above 1000-1200 meters on Western Alps, and 1200-1500 on Centre-Eastern Alps, then by saturday to sunday morning, the snow line will descend on 7-900 meters on Alps and Pre-Alps and on 800-1000 in the Northern Appennines, including Tuscany. :yahoo:

    Hi, just looking for this kind of help.

     

    I am in Treviso and Venice from the 27th-31st January. 

     

    Which are the best weather reports to watch.

     

    I know we have chosen the lowest tides as don't want to be wearing wellies for days again.

    Hi Matty, I suggests this one: http://www.arpa.veneto.it/previsioni/en/html/meteo_pianura.php

    It's the bulletin of the regional meteorological center of Veneto, and for Venice and Treviso is probably the most reliable one.

    It's also in english, so it's easier to  understand for a non-italian.

     

     

    This one instead, about the tides: http://www.comune.venezia.it/flex/cm/pages/ServeBLOB.php/L/EN/IDPagina/1748?uniq=ec4b86335372933fdec02dbf1dfcc8cb

     

     

    I hope to have been helpful

    You have indeed, thankyou .

     

    Also, (not weather) looking for events /concerts/exhibitions in treviso 28/29 or Venice 30/31. 

    There doesn't seem to be any planned events using the regular event sites.

    Are there "What's On" websites in Italian which are more likely to have up to date information?

    Thankyou.

    mmmhh, Ok now I understand why Italy is so complicated for easy stuffs.. :wallbash: 

    I'm very sorry but...there are no sites like What's on or something similar. As for Venice, you can find maybe two hundred event sites..it' a shame that most of these are totally useless or graphically obsolete..

    Maybe you can find some interesting informations about events, concerts, etc...on: 

    http://www.agendavenezia.org/en/

    http://en.venezia.net/

    http://en.turismovenezia.it/

     

     

    And this is Venice, one of the most turistic city in the world...

    Good evening.

    Winter is trying to conquer the Mediterranean Sea, the next week.

     

    Nothing that can make us jump on the chair but a little bit of winter, with 850hPa temperatures next to the average or a little bit under average.

     

    Probably some more snow on the Alps and some snow on Appennines and Monte Amiata(the highest mountain of Siena, s province, 1738 meters).

     

     

    LIVE T. SITUATION:

    Siena centre(340 meters): +6.8°C

     

    Florence centre(48 meters): +8.6°C

    We are expecting a bit of "inversion" tonight. So diffuse frost on the Tuscany vallies, with values under zero.


    There are many vallies outside Siena that can normally experiment -5/-7° C without a Cold Wave, only with inversion, with clear skies.  

     

    Siena, doesn't have inversions, because is circundated by vallies and located on the highest hills

    Ok, here we are...

     

    Winter is finally came in Italy

     

    Monte Amiata, or mountain, is covered by snow. 10-15 cm at 1300 meters, 30 cm on the edge(1600-1700 meters). This permits the opening of the ski resort.

     


    In Siena Today:

    LOWEST T. 5.6°C
    HIGHEST T 10.5°C

     

     

    So temperatures at low altitude are still a little bit over the average, but colder than the beginning of 2015...

     

    In the Pic, Monte Amiata in his best clothes.. :)

    Very Hot July in Italy.

    For now, in my area(SIENA, TUSCANY), is the hottest july in recent history.

     

    The mean T. for July 2015 is 27.5°C.
    Compared to the 1961-1990 Mean, +5.3°C above normal(+22.2°C)!! :shok:  :shok:  :oops:  

     

     

    The cause is a constant inflow of Subtropical air(Maghreb origin) on the Mediterrenean Sea, due to the "Anticiclone nordafricano" as we call it.

    The sea surface is now terribly hot, 4/5°C more than july 2014 

     

     

    Some datas and two pic that explain the current, dramatical, situation.

    Regarding the earlier comment about thunderstorm forecasts not materializing in the Med in summer: my friend just arrived in Italy to a stupidly hot day, followed by a deluge of enormous hailstones; it looks like lots of Europe is about to get a huge amount of heat, surely some thunder there as well?

    Just found this link about another stormy Italian event at the start of July, maybe more of the same starting soon when heat kicks in?

    Their CAPE forecast for tomorrow night looks amazing, when might we have a good hot thundery spell?
