Snow at Easter in the Amalfi Coast and Sorrento? It is not an April fish. Burian returns for spring

Start the tourist season and open one to one restaurants and hotels for Easter, so many would like to know from us the weather forecast, forecasts that surprise us .. And that’s why
Still cold and frost, even snow on Positano, Amalfi and Sorrento? We will have to do a marathon weather and warn the citizens about Positanonews of what is happening, including open or closed schools, throughout the Sorrento Peninsula and Amalfi Coast and the surrounding areas of the provinces of Salerno and Naples. Even at Easter that coincides with the first of April? A joke or what? It seems instead that it is not an April fish.

The anomalous wave of cold and frost that has affected Italy and in particular Campania at the end of February could return and make an encore right on the day of early spring. According to the forecast by ilmeteo.it, in fact, the icy air from Russia, the famous Burian, could return from March 20, the day of the spring equinox.

“Accompanied by disturbed fronts, the Burian marzolino would once again bring snow into the plains on the northern regions. Our forecasts for Easter and Easter Monday 2018 indicate a scenario with cold and snowy raids until April, the classic winter rush “.
“Between the end of March and the first days of April the weather will be characterized by strong instability with thunderstorms at CentroSud, low altitude snow over the Alps and also on the central Tuscan-Emilian Apennines”. So there is an Easter and Easter Monday in the name of scarves, hats and gloves!

Even in the ’80s there were cold springs, sometimes until May after cold winters, a consequence of climatic anomalies. We have explained to you a few weeks ago how these extreme climatic events are in fact a sign of global warming caused by man.
All of you will remember the ’70s and’ 80s, with snowy winters, and icy weather for many days; all of you, who even with a little nostalgia, will remember the icy January 1985, caused by one of the last stratospheric overheating (stratwarming) that had split the polar vortex in two, favoring the descent of freezing air masses towards the Italy.

Well, writes the team of Meteo.it, the same thing will happen with the stratwarming of February 2018, one of the most powerful of the last 30 years, which will show its effects for the entire month of March and April if not even to compromise the Summer 2018 which promises to be limping and rainy, roller coaster style; the strat warming could in fact transform and lengthen into a FINAL WARMING or a lasting polar stratospheric heating.
Our forecast for Easter and Easter Monday indicates the real possibility of polar break-ins able to bring the winter back to our country, reaping snowfall at very low altitude if not in the plains, as often happened in the ’70s and’ 80s. The ski season could last until the first days of May, and the Azores anticyclone could really take long to arrive.
