Italy’s Summer appears to have come to an end with widespread rain and wind over the weekend – and the first snow within the Italian mountains!
The first snow of the season fell in several towns in the Italian Alps.
Further snowfall predicted over the next few days, even at much lower altitudes. At the Colle del Sestriere mountain, 15 centimetres of snow fell at 1,800 metres.
Further snow was reported in Foppolo in Bergamo, and various other Alpine resorts including Madonna di Campiglio, Cogne, Champoluc, and Santa Caterina Valfurva.
Temperatures are set to fall, bringing further snowfall across Italy.
According to the forecasters at Meteo,it, cold currents will mean snow at altitudes as low as 700 metres in the Alps, and 1,000 metres in the Northern Apennines.
