Sediment from river runoff discolours the water off and around the coastline of mainland Italy and the island of Sicily. It is particularly evident in the bodies of water off Italy's east coast where large volumes of sediment laden water are discharging into the Gulf of Venice and from the River Po Delta into the Adriatic Sea. The Alps, Northern Apennines and Dinaric Alps are snow covered and fog can be seen in the Po valley.
