Will the great African heat also reach Italy?

The African anti-cyclone is warming up the engines, and for the next few days it will favor its first major warming. But super heat, coming straight from the scorching desert, is imminent or not?

His main focus, on this day, however, is Spainwhere we expect asummer heat wave Really exceptional for this period, with temperatures that could reach 40 degrees Celsius!

The African high pressure will surely be able to extend its influence to all of our country as it is expected to be the hottest phase between the days of Friday 28th and Saturday 29th April. However, it will not be a heat wave similar to the Spanish one or even like the one we are used to in July and August.

Saturday 29 To reach the highest rung of the platform where the hottest zone will be Sardinia Where respectable points can still be touched for the period even close to 32/34°C (Colors purple light And white). Values ​​approach 30 °C even in the easternmost region Sicily (color Viola), while we will have a few degrees lower in the southern peninsula. Even in the rest of Italy you will feel the heat, as evidenced by the color Red (up to 24/25°C) Spread over most parts of the country.
