Rome, April 22 - Italians who were boldly bundling
their winter coats and gloves into the back of the closet last
week were pulling them out Monday in the face of unseasonably
cool, wet weather.
Forecasters were calling for unstable weather across the
peninsula through Wednesday with cool temperatures,
thunderstorms and rain.
Heavy snowfalls of as much as 90 centimeters were reported
on the weekend in the far northern Alpine region near Turin,
triggering avalanche warnings.
Weekend rains and melting snow high up in the Apennines
caused some flooding along the Po River in northern Italy.
Conditions in the south have been forecast to improve
first, with rain showers and thunderstorms expected in the
centre of Italy and on Sardinia through Wednesday.
By Thursday, sunny skies are expected, bringing warmer
temperatures in the centre and south.
However, more thunderstorms and heavy rain are expected to
strike again in the north on Saturday.
