Extremely rare July snow in Germany

Also snowing in Austria, Switzerland, and Italy.

“Europeans Stunned As Winter Strikes In Mid July!”

“Snow Down To Only 1500 Meters”

”Extremely Rare”

“For mid July such a low elevation snowfall is extremely rare,” reports meteorologist Dominik Jung. “Clearly snow is not real unusual in June or late August at these elevations, but in July it is truly an unusual event to witness. This summer is not only behaving like fall, but even like winter.

  1. Intense Arctic Low pressure system transiting Northern UK over the next 5 days to centre on Southern Finland as from 20th July for several days, High Pressure ridge system over Faroes, will intensify the Northerly Arctic air stream during this latter period.
    Cold Northerly air stream giving wet, cold conditions throughout Germanic states into Lower Alpine regions, snow possible for a time in Alpine regions above 1500 M, during Friday 22nd and 23rd July.

    • Well it ant happening, meridional jet streams can and do provide beneficial summer weather as well as the cold stuff. The Artic Low has decided it likes Iceland and is staying put and the Azores High has built a ridge over the UK and a Summer of two hot days and thunder storm for Wednesday is in the plan. Most of Europe should now warm up for summer.
      Topsy-turvy weather is brilliant, it drives Gullible Warmists nuts.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if the UK Met tries to find a southern UK heat island hot spot, to claim hottest this or that over the next few days.

      • Low and behold, Brize Norton has claimed the hot spot. Conveniently a RAF Transport Command Airfield the size of Heathrow and a significant Heat Island. No reverse Jet blast warming up the Met Station this time with the temperature consistent with other locations.
        The heat all due to a Meridional Spanish plume of hot humid air originating from Africa driven North over the West coast of Europe. That pesky blocked Low to the South of Iceland has a lot to answer for. Our Wednesday thunderstorm came in on track.
