Another cool summer for the south and warm for the north is on track. A heat wave occurred the last 5 days in southeast, which is gradually coming to an end. Let’s have an overview of the early August weather.
In particular, after the first attempt of August to bring some cooler air in the southeast, there will be a second one much more successful within the upcoming week. The temperature is going to drop to May levels, while convective weather will affect most of Balkans, Italy and the mainland of Greece for around 3-5 days. The reason is a new atmospheric depression in the middle troposphere, which will move from central Europe to the east-southeast affecting the southeast corner of Europe with temperature drop and thunderstorms/rain. In contrast, the weather will be improved over west and north Europe especially after 7/8/2020 with 30’s coming up in many places, even in south England and southern of Scandinavia for at least 3-5 days.
In case you are going to visit southeast Europe, you may face the following situation:
a. Thunderstorms or showers may be severe at times and places around afternoon
b. South Aegean islands demonstrate the least possibility for thunderstorms or any weather.
c. The temperature drop will be significant with maximum values in continental areas around 30-32°C or less and minimum around 20°C or less.
d. Northerlies will be dominant over the seas exceeding in some cases 70km/h.
e. Unsettled weather may continue till 10/8/2020.
