Removed possible copyvio[edit]

Two parts of this major addition match [1] (note in particular the "compare the tables" line linking to exactly the same examples even though our Brindisi article doesn't have a climate table); I have removed these parts, but have not attempted to determine whether the rest of the added text was copied from somewhere else.--QuantumEngineer (talk) 08:00, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Climate Data of Italy[edit]

On Wikipedia in Italian language, there is this category with the regional subcategories of the meteorological stations with many climate datas (for example look here). --95.74.163.251 (talk) 13:57, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Edits on Cfa and other remarks[edit]

Edit : a lot of approximations in the article. The comparison between winters of Cfa climate and oceanic climate (Paris or London) has no sense because both have mild winters (it depends of the nuances). Snow influence is exagerated. And this climate is not at all continental (too mild winters). Florence is rather mediterranean (dry summers). In fact, the essential mark of Cfa climate is the hot and wet summer. Oceanic climate does not really exist, excepted some local montainous areas. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.161.11.212 (talk) 20:15, 10 September 2010 (UTC)

Yes, Northern Italy is essentially Humid subtropical. But why is Florence kept as humid subtropical. It seems that it is rather a Mediterranean city ?--XL3 (talk) 17:20, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

I cancelled Florence from humid subtropical: having colder winters thamn Genoa or Rome does not mean it has a climate similar to North Italy! Florence has a kind of "inner-land Mediterranean" climate, with very hot and dry summers, and colder (but not as cold as in the North) winters when frost is not uncommon and a few snowfalls may be seen. Claiming that North Italy winters are "mild" is another mistake: January is as cold as in West Germany or Holland, and the entire season is colder than England or France, comparing it to places located at the same altitude or distance from the sea. Otherwise, we could state that entire West Europe has mild to warm winters (I am serious, West Europe winters are no way as cold as East Europe or Scandinavia ones). Days of snow are often in a lower number, but the average snow fallen in the single day is often higher: a little paradox, since North Italy is someway "protected" by mountain chains by winter, both to north and to south; so the cold air remains trapped (fog and frost are very common) but there are fewer rain/snowfall days.

What a mess...[edit]

This article looks like it's written in Fortran, and is pretty much unreferenced. Just does not meet the quality standards to be an article. Ecopetition (talk) 22:52, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
