Very intense wave of frost arriving between the USA and CanadaIn the coming days, many areas of the United States of America and Canada will have to deal with a new and very intense wave of frost that will bring temperatures down to -45°C.

The map below shows the thermal anomalies at an altitude of approximately 1500m. In the areas colored in fuchsia, temperatures could even be 20°C below the average for the period.Thermal anomalies at 1500m altitude between USA and CANADAHaving said that, the question arises spontaneously; Will there be risks for Italy too?
