It’s snowing in Piano Battaglia, on the Madonie. As predicted by meteorologists, temperatures have dropped in Sicily too, rain has made its appearance and, on the highest peaks, snow too. In the last few hours the first flakes of the year have fallen on Piano Battaglia.
From the images of the Meteopalermo Onlus Association, released on the official Facebook profile, you can see how the mountains have whitened and snowfall is also expected for the next few hours. “Good morning from Piano Battaglia where a dusting of snow is finally underway”, writes the Association which, via the webcam installed at 1580 meters above sea level, at “Il ristoro dello Scoiattolo”, provides the wonderful images in real time.
For today, the regional civil protection has issued a warning yellow alert for meteorological-hydrogeological and hydraulic risk due to thunderstorms, in the province of Palermo. The warning predicts strong or stormy winds from the early hours. The ventilation will particularly affect the coastal sectors, with storm surges along the exposed coasts.
Scattered rainfall is also expected, including downpours or thunderstorms in northern Sicily. The phenomena will be accompanied by heavy showers, frequent electrical activity and strong gusts of wind.
