Le Marche Italy, weather guide
The weather in Le Marche is hugely affected by the Apennine Mountains running down the length of the region to the west and the long Adriatic coastline to the east.
Snow starts falling on the Mountains in November and can still be seen on them all the way through to May, this allows for many small ski resorts to exist in the Mountain areas of the region.
Fog is also a problem from November through to late March and can sometimes lie in the valleys for days during January and February. Many of the small hilltop villages are over 400 metres above sea level and can also can sit above the cloud line while the weather in the valley below is clear.
Spring can be unpredictable and there can be periods with warm or hot days but then very cold nights. Spring also tends to arrive a month to six weeks earlier in Le Marche than in the UK.
Summer is hot and dry with intense thunderstorms and some flash flooding, but the hot temperatures can last from April right the way through to November.
