The temperature suddenly dropped when Italy was hit by heavy rain.
The unrelenting rains in Italy and the sudden drop in temperatures in recent days have resulted in the country’s coldest September in 50 years, Italian media reported.
Over the weekend, temperatures in Italy drop between 10 and 15 degrees, causing snowfall much earlier than usual.
Bad weather, fueled by a belt of cold air from northern Europe, was particularly strong in Milan and Turin which recorded temperatures of 5 ° C and 4 ° C respectively on the evening of Sunday 27 September.
Temperatures have also fallen sharply elsewhere – to below 10 ° C degrees in Tuscany – while the hilly towns of the Lazio region are seeing snow over the weekend.
The regions of Calabria, Campania, Lazio and Sardinia are currently seeing heavy rains and thunderstorms, but forecasters expect the weather to improve across the country, with temperatures rising, starting September 29.
