Hot, sunny weather promised for holiday

Rome, August 14 - Sunny skies and tolerably hot
weather should make the Ferragosto holiday and the weekend that
follows feel comfortable across Italy, forecasters said
Wednesday.
Italians can enjoy their most significant summer holiday on
the beach, in the mountains, or on hilly picnic grounds without
fear of roasting or flooding as normal summer temperatures are
expected.
Clouds that had been lingering over northern parts of Italy
should drift away by Thursday, said forecasters at Meteo.it.
At the same time, the scorching heat that menaced parts of
central Italy and extended into the south last week - and fanned
forest fires on Sardinia - have moderated.
"We have a prevalence of good weather," says Meteo.it.
Even in Rome, which can run a little hot, temperatures will
feel comfortable in the coming days because low humidity is
expected, making the air feel less sultry, said Antonio Sano,
director of weather website ilmeteo.it.
That kind of weather should continue until the final few
days of August, added Sano.
He forecasts "sunshine and pleasant temperatures all over
Italy in August," with maximum temperatures expected to average
about 28 degrees celsius in the north, and range from 30 to 33
degrees celsius in Italy's center-south.
Austerity biting into families' wallets mean that a
barbecue on the beach or in the countryside or mountains are
likely to be more popular options than pricey restaurant meals
as Italian Catholics celebrate the Assumption of the Virgin Mary
- marked by the August 15 holiday.
Heat is, of course, relative and the fur-clad creatures
living in Rome's zoo can expect a watermelon treat to help them
cope with summer temperatures.
Monkeys, chimpanzees, lemurs, seals, turtles, hippos and
the star Asian elephant Sofia have been promised the sweet fruit
treats, Bioparco di Roma Foundation President Federico Coccìa
said Wednesday.
