The Civil Protection has issued an orange alert for tomorrow on some sectors of the Calabria and Sicily. A Mediterranean vortex will cause more rains on half of Italy over the course of the weekend. The confirmation has just arrived thanks to the latest updates in view of the first weekend of November, which will be conditioned by the passage of an insidious cyclone with consequences on many regions between Saturday 5 and Sunday 6. In the last hours the weather conditions have actually worsened. with widespread rains, especially in the North and also with the return of snow on our Alps: the cause of all this was the first real disturbance with autumnal connotations that occurred on the northern regions during the afternoon and evening of Thursday 3 November.

Well, over the weekend we will have to deal with the aftermath of this disturbed front, with the difference that this time effects will be almost exclusively in the Center-South.
In the early hours of Saturday 5 however, the rains may still affect part of Romagna and the eastern Alpine arc, with falling snow levels, up to 1200 meters above sea level. The weather, however, will improve quickly in these northern sectors as well.
Instead, the eyes will be focused on almost everything Center-South and on the two Major Islands where heavy rains are expected with the risk that flooding may also occur locally due to the high energy involved (our seas are still quite warm) and the intense contrasts between different air masses. In relation to the evolution of the weather, the Civil Protection issued a warning message ‘Orange‘for the Tyrrhenian belt of the province of Cosenza and on alert’yellow‘for the rest of the Region Calabria. Sparse to diffuse precipitation is expected, including downpours or thunderstorms.

Sunday 6 the cyclone will slowly leave Italy, however conditions of strong instability will remain in the central-southern Adriatic regions and in Sicily (Tyrrhenian side) where other thunderstorms will be possible.
On the rest of Italy, on the other hand, we will have more and more sunny spaces, thanks to a comeback of the high pressure, even if the temperatures are expected in any case to decrease due to the winds expected from the northern quadrants.
