Broken cold records in France

Breaks a series of records for the entire month of April dating back to 1938.

A few days ago, a very deep cyclonic vortex left the North Atlantic for Scandinavia.

This atmospheric giant started pumping cold air from the North Atlantic to Western Europe on Sunday. And on April 6, the cold penetrated south into Italy and the Balkans.

In Western Europe it gets colder and colder and comes the snow.

A cold wave hit France so strong on the night of April 6 in France it set a series of low temperature records. The deterioration in weather conditions was especially noticeable in the northern and central parts of the country. In some regions, a warning was issued for a wave of cold, snow and ice on the roads. In the Haute-de-France region, the air temperature dropped to -6.9 ° C at night, in the center of the country and in the Loire Valley in some places to – 6.4 ° C.

In Orleans, the morning temperature dropped to -5.4 ° C, breaking the one-day record set in 1938. In the metropolitan area of ​​Ile-de-France, night temperatures dropped to -3 ° C. There is a cold-weather warning on the Cote d’Azur, where the wind speed will increase to 12-15 m / s with gusts up to 20 m / s. In Corsica, when the cold front moves ins from the northwest, showers and storms with wind gusts of up to 12-15 m / s are expected.

Thanks to Martin Siebert and Emmanuel for this info

“Between -5°C and -7°C in the morning for several cities here in France,” says Emmanuel. “Records for the entire month of April, of course.”

  1. Same thing is happening down here in Tasmania. Polar vortex’s coming up from Antarctica used to be a rare event, now we are getting hit by them every year, we are due for another one later this week.

    YAYY !

  3. Earth’s 140-year “amplitude compression” rebound from the end of the 500-year Little Ice Age (AD 1350 to 1850/1890) progresses right on schedule.

    Given alternating warm-cool phases over fifty years (1890 – 1939), forty years (1940 – 1979), thirty years (1980 – 2009), now 2010 – 2029), diminishing wavelengths induce increasingly severe fluctuations in global atmospheric surface temperatures (GAST).

    Because temperature cycles cannot be less than twenty years, basic math requires that extremes will become chaotic-fractal, random-recursive from 2030 on. Coincident with a looming 88-year Super-Grand Solar Minimum through AD 2108 plus this site’s prescient geomagnetic pole-reversal, a recurring 102-kiloyear post-Holocene Interglacial Pleistocene ice-time bodes ill for humanity’s 3.7+ billion dust-mote Earth inhabitants.
