The cold front that hit Italy, and southern Italy in particular (mainly Puglia and Basilicata and Calabria and Campania to a lesser extent), was extremely abnormal and unexpected. Temperatures dropped to -8°C.

According to Coldiretti Puglia, the worst situation was registered in the Taranto and Foggia areas, were farmers had to use their own equipment to clean the roads in order to reach their crops.

In the meantime, winter vegetables were damaged by the frost and heating costs in greenhouses and stables have skyrocketed.

Citrus groves were also damaged, although the extent may only be assessed over the next few days, provided that weather conditions improve. Table grape vineyards collapsed under the weight of the snow, even in the areas closest to the sea.
