WEATHER FORECAST FOR 21 FEBRUARY 2024: CHANGE IN CIRCULATION WITH ATLANTIC CURRENTS BRINGING TYPICAL AUTUMN WEATHER.

The high pressure in the Azores which has modulated the weather in recent weeks will also have a strong impact on the weather evolution of the next few days, across a large part of the European sector. The intensification and movement of the high pressure field towards the North, in the Atlantic, will favor the evolution of a deep rift over central Europe, right down to the central-western Mediterranean. Disturbed conditions and winds, even intense, from the South-West will accompany the next few days until the weekend. 

Wednesday 21 February. Stable and sunny weather with a slow and partial increase in cloud cover in the afternoon, due to mainly high and stratified clouds. Temperatures stationary or slightly increasing in maximum values. Weak winds intensifying and rotating from the southern quadrants. Calm seas.

Thursday 22 February. Increasing cloudiness due to high and stratified clouds with more significant accumulations in the afternoon, and along the mountain and foothill areas. Possible, irregular, clearing along the coastal strip, subject to greater variability. Temperatures markedly increasing in minimum values, particularly in inland areas. Light to moderate winds from the southwest. Calm seas.

Friday 23 February. Disturbed weather with widespread precipitation starting at night and earlier along the west-facing slopes and along the Apennines. Extending on the same day to other regional areas. Stationary temperatures. Light to moderate winds from the west, calm seas.
