Wildfires continue to spread in southern Italy, with Calabria and Apulia regions now affected. Over 50,000 hectares of land have been scorched this year. Sicily remains the hardest-hit area, facing rolling blackouts and water supply issues. Meanwhile, northern Italy experiences intense thunderstorms and flooding, while the Dolomite Mountains see an unusual July snowfall. After a record heatwave in 2022, temperatures have slightly declined, but a new hot weather system from Africa is expected to hit the country again. Several cities are on alert for health risks due to the extreme weather.
