Heatwave won't let up say forecasters

Temps will hit mid-40s in south

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 22 - The heat wave that has hit Italy shows no sign of letting up, Italian weather forecasters said Tuesday.
    The mercury is set to rise to 35 degrees in Rome, 36 in Bologna, 38 in Perugia and 40 in Fermo and Ascoli Piceno this week, they said.
    Perceived temperatures in the mid-40s are possible in some southern cities including Palermo.
