Weather in Italy: Italy can be divided into three distinct geographical regions: the southern side of the Alps where Italy borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia; the great plain of the Po valley from Turin to Venice; and the long and mountainous peninsula of central and southern Italy together with the large islands of Sardinia and Sicily. Each of these regions has a distinctive and different type of weather and climate. Occasionally all parts of Italy experience very high temperatures in summer and even autumn when the sirocco blows. This is a warm, humid wind that originates over North Africa and acquires its humidity over the Mediterranean. A spell of sirocco weather in autumn often ends with very heavy rain accompanied by thunder. Sea temperatures around Italy are usually sufficiently warm to make bathing pleasant from mid-May until October, but the water can be surprisingly cold on warm sunny days in spring.
