Snow and hail hit southern Italy as temperatures plunge

“Decidedly unusual for this time of year.”

The end of March is set to be unusually cold across much of Italy. This comes after weeks of mild weather, with wind, rain and even snow in some places this week.

Some parts of southern Italy woke up to snow or hail on Tuesday morning and temperatures dropped across the country as a cycle of freezing air moved in from Russia across parts of the Mediterranean.

A wave of frosty weather is expected to sweep across the south and centre of Italy of the country between Tuesday and Thursday, which is “decidedly unusual for this time of year”, writes Meteo.it
