Probably silly weather question….anyone in Italy right now?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are leaving for Italy on Monday, March 16. We will be in Florence 5 nights, Tuscany for 6 nights and then Rome for 5 nights. I've been obsessively checking the weather for a month trying to decide what to bring. The weather predictions now are mid 60's while we are in Florence and then mid 50's for the rest of the trip.

We live in Texas and when it's in the 50's that's cold for us, so I had picked out some wool pants, raincoat and a mid weight coat to take, although, it's Spring here at home and it's hard to think about going back to coats. Then, I read an entry in Elizabeth Minchilli's blog that talked about it being the beginning of Spring in Rome, trees were blooming and they had started working on their garden in the country.

Now, here's the probably silly question….I lived in Western Idaho from December one year until May. In late April, when the temps hit the upper 50's, it felt like Spring, almost time for wearing shorts. Temperature just feels different in different places. When the temp hits 65 in NYC, it's warm; 65 in Texas, not so much. What does the 50's and 60's feel like in Italy? I understand this is subjective. Please if anyone is there now, let me know what you are experiencing.
Thanks!
