“Here in Italy it hasn’t snowed like this in May for 70 years !!” says reader.
The snow began to fall over 150 meters in central-northern Italy in regions such as Emilia Romagna.
In the late afternoon at Prignano sulla Secchia, at 557 m above sea level, on the Modena pre-Apennines, around 20 cm and with a heavy snowfall in a purely winter atmosphere.
The snow with accumulations dropped to 3/400 meters and wet flakes even at 150 meters on the Emilia and Romagna foothills. Hilly snow also on the Apennines and up to 50 cm (almost 2 ft) over 900/1000 meters.
This is a truly exceptional event with few precedents in the weather history of the last 60/70 years. In the coming night hours and in the course of tomorrow, the cold front will progressively move towards the Center and the South, bringing showers above all on the Apennine and Adriatic areas, also here with snow.
