Month-by-month climate in Italy!
In recent months, many are debating the drastic changes in the global climate. Global warming and the series of natural tragedies in the world over the past few months were no accident: climate change exists and directly affects all continents.

Fires, torrential rains, violent hurricanes. Nature is revolted and, with good reason, it is increasingly rebelling. The global climate situation is so serious that at the 74th United Nations General Assembly (UN), which takes place in New York, in the United States, the subject could not fail to be mentioned. Scientists are concerned and governments urgently need to take action to try to “stop” problems such as, for example, the greenhouse effect, pollution of rivers and oceans and so many others. Despite several agreements signed between various nations, the matter seems to be far from being resolved, since not all of them respect the agreements signed and, worse, not all of them sign them.

After all, what is going on with the weather?
Well, part of that change is the result of the Earth’s natural evolution cycle. Many scholars claim that the planet is still “coming out” of the last ice age, it was over 20,000 years ago. The records show that the temperature increases, year by year, come from 150 thousand years ago, but, because of human actions, the speed has tripled, with consequences, sometimes, disastrous.
Polluting gases, garbage and many other factors make the Earth’s atmosphere retain more heat from the sun, which is when the greenhouse effect occurs. The result: higher temperatures and less and less defined seasons. In some parts of the world, the inhabitants deal with the four seasons of the year in one day, the thermal amplitude exceeds 15 degrees, and rain and sun fight for space. To give you an idea: during the 20th century, the average global temperature increased by 0.6 degrees Celsius. It seems a derisory value, but it is extremely worrying! While some regions have heated up, others have cooled down, and this change has a direct impact on fauna and flora. Furthermore, the impact is felt directly on people’s health. In other words, climate change ruthlessly affects EVERYTHING and EVERYONE.
How are the seasons in Italy?
Well, the seasons of the year in Italy were always very well defined. THEY WERE! Until the page two! For a few years now, the stations have become more and more “confusing”; it rains when it should not, it is sunny when it should be snowy, in short, everything is a bit messy! Last August, for example, high Italian summer there were some storms in several Italian cities and even hail, which “dyed” some coastal cities, such as Genoa, in white. For this reason, I can already say that it is quite complicated to say exactly how the months will be in Italy when we talk about the weather, everything can change overnight and, unfortunately, the weather forecast is not always right.
To give you an idea: in the Dolomites, the Italian mountain range, the average temperature, even in summer, was 20 or 23 degrees. This year, during the summer, the temperature reached an impressive 28 degrees at an altitude of 1600 meters above sea level! The figure that most impressed Italy, however, was the month of June; normally, at night, temperatures were between 18 and 20 degrees. This year, in some locations, during the night, the temperature hit 30 degrees! That is, in general, the average temperature in Italy increases by about 2.5 degrees PER YEAR! It’s too much! Let’s see, in the table below, the month-to-month climate in Italy.

|January||10°C – 0°C||From 5 to 8 days – with a chance of snow|

Important to Know…
It is worth remembering that the temperatures and rainy days mentioned are approximate values, based on averages with data from the last 10 years. It can cool and heat up in the summer, nothing prevents it, but they are changes that last between one and three days. The intensity of the rains can also vary, as well as the intensity of the snow, especially in places with high altitude.
Therefore, it is very complicated to answer questions such as “if I don’t want to get rain, when should I go to Italy?“. It is all very subjective, it depends on your destination, the time of year and the strength of nature. An important tip: ALWAYS check the weather forecast! Before leaving and while there, always remembering that they may also be wrong! We cannot promise you that you will not have any surprises with the weather, so: go prepared! Take a cardigan in your summer suitcase and little lighter clothes in your winter suitcase. You never know! Alternatively, use a sudden change of weather to go shopping!
