A system in central Europe causes short change of the weather with snow at places in central Europe and Germany.

 

The cause of this weather change is a cold front crossing central eastern Europe. We collected a few videos from youtube showing this situation this early morning. Videos come from places around 400 meters of elevation. However, snow occurred even over low levels at places.

 

 

 

 

An extreme heat wave is taking place over western and central Europe being the second episode for this summer. Let’s have a look at the places which will be mostly affected.

On Tuesday (24/7/2019), Meteo France registered 41.2C (106.1°F) in the south-western city, breaking a 2003 record of 40.7°C.

Tomorrow (25/7/2019), the mercury will again climb to 40°C or more in areas of Spain, France, Germany and Netherlands, while most of western Europe will face temperatures larger than 35°C including southeast UK. For details please see the map below. This situation will be fairly uncomfortable due to increased minimum temperatures, which will not drop lower than 22-24°C in the morning. However, in large cities the temperature will not drop lower than 26-29°C!

This heatwave will be gradually retreating from Thursday 26/7/2019 firstly affecting Spain and France, and later (27/7/2019) the rest of central Europe. This heatwave ending will be followed by severe thunderstorms (possibly hailstorms at places) in France, north Spain, Netherlands, south UK, Germany and central/northern Italy.

The weather is going to change dramatically the upcoming week in central and mainly eastern Europe from Sunday (12/5/2019) presenting autumnal traits.

 

In particular, from Sunday and then, the Azores anticyclone will be gradually developed and established in western Europe with a centre over the UK. This will result in better (fair and dry) weather conditions in western Europe with hot for the season temperatures over south and west Iberia (up to 35-37°C).

This situation will push colder arctic air masses to invade north and eastern Europe. Snow will occur in north-central Scandinavia even on lower ground regions, while some snow may be observed over hills/mounts in the northern regions of central/eastern Europe (such as eastern Germany, Poland etc).

Next, the majority of eastern Europe, from Italy and further to the east, will be affected by stormy and colder than average weather with rain at times and afternoon thunderstorms mostly in central and western regions. The most severe weather, where hailstorms may occur, is expected in eastern Italy, western Balkans and possibly regions of northeastern Balkans far from the sea.

The weather will remain fair, dry and hot in Cyprus and eastern Turkey.

 

The weather may completely be reversed from 18/5/2019 and then with a possible heat wave in southeastern Europe and rainy weather for the western.

EUROPE WEATHER

After a long period of high pressure conditions and mostly dry weather over the western Europe, the weather pattern over our continent changes at least for a while.

 

During the period between 20/1 and 25/1/2019, the Azores anticyclone is going to be restricted over its original position (Azores islands). For this reason, at the beginning of this period we should expect an extensive low pressure system over northwest Europe with a short snow episode mostly over Iceland, Scotland and northern England. Cold weather will dominate over central and eastern countries with some mainly light snow in coastal areas of Scandinavia, eastern Europe and northern Balkans. This cold air mass, then, will move south-westwards combined with a deep low pressure system affecting regions of France, Iberia and Italy and Alps with snow in northern regions and rainfalls in southern regions. Heavy snowfalls may occur over Iberian, Moroccan and Algerian mountains. The weather will remain milder in southeastern Europe with southerlies, rainfalls in western and southern coasts and a possibility for African dust transportation.
