Extreme cold dropping deeper and deeper into old Europe. Also videos of deep snow burying cars and streets.
European media are trying to connect the cold climate that reached foreign Europe with the “beast from the east”, according to meteonovosti.ru. But this time you shouldn’t be manipulating your favorite stereotypes. Abnormal frosts in February 2021 came from the ‘north’: a vast arctic anticyclone, which formed near the coast of Greenland, is being introduced deeper and deeper into Old Europe!
Cold records started in Europe. It’s logical to expect records of minimum temperature, especially in Scandinavian countries, when Arctic air invades from the north. They have already happened in Norway. In Ålesund, this is not the first cold record in February. The first was recorded on February 6, when the thermometers dropped to -8.2°C. On February 9, with an anticyclonic calm climate, the night temperature dropped even more, now for Ålesund the record minimum for February 9 is -10.8°C, which is 3.4 degrees below the previous daily minimum. registered in 1963.
In Germany, it didn’t break records, but last night became the coldest of almost the whole country since the beginning of the 21st century. In Saxony’s capital, Dresden, the temperature dropped to -16°C, in the country’s capital Berlin to -10°C, in northern Bavaria there were ten degrees of frost. The cold is going further south and east of Germany, the approaching night will be even colder.
An unusually cold climate in the second half of the week awaits the Apennines and the Balkans.
The frosts will reach this part of Europe not from the east, but from the northwest.
