(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 23 – Storm break arriving in the North, where the hegemony of the anticyclone ‘Hannibal’ is about to end, at least temporarily. The sun and atmospheric stability are in fact about to give way, in the north, to thunderstorms, often accompanied by hailstorms, and to a drop in temperatures, while in Centrosud it will still be sunny and warm.
