Novembrata: Rome's unseasonably warm weather to last until November

2022 is Italy's hottest year in 222 years.

The Ottobrata Romana, a term used to describe Rome's balmy Indian Summer weather that traditionally occurs in October, is set to continue into the month of November for the first time.

The unseasonably warm spell, christened "Novembrata" by the Italian weather forecast site IlMeteo.it, is spurred by the latest anticyclone from Africa, bringing with it weather more typical to June.

The warm temperatures - set to peak at 27 degrees in the days leading up to Halloween - also means an extended season for mosquitoes.

2022 is Italy's hottest and driest year since records began in 1800, according to the National Research Council's Institute of Atmosphere and Climate Science.
