Storm Finjas is responsible for this snowfall. Its eastern current brings in a mixture of cold air from Russia and humid air from the Adriatic Sea to the central Apennines (Abruzzo). This low pressure area determines the weather in central Italy till Friday. The snowline will rise to 1300 meters. A new storm is expected after the weekend.
