Italy Weather

Climate:
Italy's climate varies rather dramatically north to south. In November it can be overcast and freezing in Milan, partly cloudy and 70 degrees in Rome, and hot and sunny in Palermo.

In the mountain regions of the north, summers are usually cooler than the southern reaches of the country, and winters bring very cold temperatures and snow, often heavy.

Directly to the south of the Alps in the Po River Valley (from Turin to Venice) summers are warm and humid, with frequent thunderstorms; the fall months are pleasant but can be a bit foggy and chilly, and winter brings dense fog, cold temperatures, and snow is rather common central and west.

The coastal areas of Italy experience much milder winters and are generally hot and dry in summer. The further south, the hotter and drier conditions become.

In central and southern Italy, the winter months are very mild, summers are usually hot and dry, and sunny sky's are the norm. In far southern Italy and on Sicily, temps reach a bit higher in summer, while fall and winter can be rainy.
