(iLMeteo.it) – As widely expected, the African anti-cyclone Apocalypse4800, after hitting Western Europe, expands eastwards: today, after leaving France and British Isles Amid exceptional records of heat and violent storms, this strikes as ironic Germany and Scandinavia. At 1500 m the 24 °C isotherm reaches these parts of Northern Europe, i.e. 35/40 °C in the plains: probably record values here.
Then, at the end of the week, the eastward expansion of the anticyclone will increase the heat in Italy as well: many will say, but isn’t the climate already warm enough in our country? Unfortunately it is true, it is already very warm, we are 7/8 degrees above average for the period, but in the course the freezing level will rise again from the current 4800 meters to 5000 meters inland, resulting in higher temperatures in the plains. rise up to 40/42 °C In the shade.
On the other hand, the name Apocalisse4800 describes the situation well, at an incredible altitude, 1000 meters above normal with freezing temperatures: the thermometer only goes below zero at an altitude of 4800 meters and the highest mountain in Europe, Mont Blanc, rises to 4809 meters, where the snow melts in all the Alps!
