Also this year, as in 2021, the Christmas holidays will be decidedly warm, even by several degrees above the average for the period, especially in the center and in the south. From 1980 to today, there is an average of one Christmas out of 10 with snow. Daniele Mocio, Lieutenant Colonel of the Air Force, confirms a pre-Christmas period with mild and pleasant temperatures but it won’t be sunny everywhere. In particular on the Po Valley, the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian sectors there will be gray skies and drizzle at times. In summary, this week will often be cloudy on the plains of the Centre-North: the anomalous heat and the good weather will be the protagonists above all in the mountains and, as regards the plains, on the Adriatic regions and in the South where we expect maximums Close to 20 degrees. For Christmas in Sicily, temperatures can locally approach 25 degrees
On the day of the winter solstice, Wednesday 21 December, more persistent rainfall is expected in Liguria and local downpours or thunderstorms out of season also in lower Lombardy, Emilia Romagna and Tuscany.
