The weather alert for strong thunderstorms is triggered today in Milan and Lombardy. From midday on Monday 18 September, the risk of encountering even violent phenomena increases.
Weather in Milan and Lombardy today
After the short anticyclonic pause on Sunday, a new intense Atlantic disturbance is expected to pass through part of Italy on Monday. This is what the experts at 3bmeteo.com anticipate. Therefore, all the Alpine and pre-Alpine areas from west to east, the foothills and the medium-high plains, especially those between Lombardy and the Triveneto, will be at risk, but the phenomena could locally extend to the lower Venetian plain.
The weather today in Milan
An area of low pressure embraces the Region, resulting in marked bad weather with widespread rainfall, including downpours or thunderstorms. Specifically, on the low western plains, very cloudy or overcast skies in the morning with rain and showers, including thunderstorms, easing from the afternoon. Clears in the evening. On the low eastern plains, very cloudy or overcast skies with light rain, rapidly absorbing from late afternoon, until clear or partly cloudy skies in the evening, on the foothills-high plains, western Prealps and Rhaetian Alps.
From late morning, light rainfall is expected in the westernmost areas of the Region, with the exception of the Apennine areas and the lower plain. These rains will intensify in the early afternoon, going from light to moderate, also extending to the Alpine and pre-Alpine areas to the east. Precipitation will continue during the night between 18 and 19/09, although it will tend to progressively decrease, running out in the morning of 19/09.
