Cloudy today, +13,1 now , your still very high 88% , after many days of drizzling , actually waiting for the typical katabatic winds from the mountains, that will turn this humid in more healthy dry air soon.

Different situation for central south Italy where is expected heavy rains in the next days.., after very warms days with location close to +28° +30° C that is very unusual in this time of the year.

No directly weather related but a earthquake in central Italy few minutes ago.. 5,4 magnitude

Not so strong.. lucky, but ours houses and historic building and villages often are very old.. There are news of some building partial collapse. 

Roma gets the shake too, less power but some local little damage are reported.

Problem is now it's raining in the main area of the quake and of course no electricity available there.

I'll keep update.

New strong earthquake right now 5,9 in the same area...

Most of people just left their home after the first strong quake of 2 hours ago so we hope in no victims,but many crash of buildings now..  this last quake was strong.. people report they feel it from Napoli,  till Venice region. I m lucky.. do not feel it i'm so far away.

Quake waves , stars are the strongest.

Hello,

partly cloudy today.. much better condition with some sun, +16,5°C actually...

 

Sunny also over the earthquake area..., it will help for sure. Still be many shakes , over 100 between 2 - 3,5 magnitude, just a few over 4,5 magnitude.

Saturday 29 will open the ski season for the highest ski center in my area, Cervinia under the Monte Rosa ( Pink Mountain). Just some of the resort will open for now.., especially 3 ares of this location... All the ski resort usually open ,if snow and cold will help, 8 December;  sometimes 1 or 2 weeks before if is a lucky early snowing season..

Plateau Rosà 3488 meters (actually all year is possible practice ski in this area )

Is there a reason why Central Italy has had several ongoing earthquakes in the last couple of months.

The last months earthquakes are all related.. yes.. but these areas are a permanent active hot spot and we dont images.jpeghave any specific notion about how those shakes will 'work'..

it is sure that the land is sinking in one side.. about 50 cm down for each strong shake

Thank you for this thread, I love Italy and have skied in Cervinia and Bormio a fair few few times (before the Euro was common currency) and have visited many times since.

The earthquakes are a shattering blow to the Central district, there are 3 separate fault lines in the area, the first quake has triggered the second two on the different fault lines. - the last one at a deeper level as far as I know.

As far as improving your English goes, it is very understandable - far better than my limited Italian, I would be happy to PM you suggested  improvements to your comments if you wished.?

Hello,

today cloudy with short raining episode, +11,3°C now.

The weekend will be raining here, not so much in true, but most of the mountains over 1500-1800 meters will get some snow.

More remarkable is the prediction about the temperature for next week, looks like we will have a taste of winter.
