This trend is set to continue, with a forecast of rising temperatures from 1 ° C to 4 ° C by the end of the century as explained by Dieter Peterlin meteorologist of the Autonomous Province of Bolzano. The latter forecast is the most problematic since the development of thunderstorms depends on various factors, such as air humidity or wind and a rise in temperatures presupposes an increase in energy in the atmosphere and the consequent development of violent thunderstorms in the Alpine arc.

The Trans-Alp project, seeks to monitor all these parameters to provide practical tools and methodologies for the prediction of cross-border impact and risk assessments to public authorities and stakeholders, so as to prevent the damage that these violent weather events could inflict on environmental and socio-economic systems in the Alpine region.
