Cold Wave Advancing

Recommended Posts

The Austrian Weather Service have issued a cold weather alert. They expect ice days throughout the whole of next week with temperatures down to -20C in some windless snowcovered Alpine valleys. The December record low is -33C back in 1939.They do remark that in the 1960s you could expect similar cold conditions in December every 2 years, however, since the turn of this century, every 5 years. Just shows how cold those Decembers were way back 40 to 50 years ago. I will keep an update during the coming week of how cold it is going to become in Austria,with pictures and stories. Half metre of snowfall expected is some parts.

Interesting. It's always good to keep an eye on winter conditions across the continent (I'm interested in trends, you see).

Hi Carinthian.

Yes looking at those 850 maps you are in for the full on wedge of cold from the North East

With a bit of luck i think in the UK we will get some ice days in a week or so,if the pattern develops as shown recently.

Anyway keep those layers handy and enjoy and keep those posts coming.

Kind regards,Phil

Morning, first of the ice days today at lower levels. Temperature in the village is currently -11C. Weather mostly dry with cloud ceiling at 2200m producing light flurries. That picture is of one of my favourite places in Obertauren. A very good resort , only 30 Km from Katschsberg with 360 degree obital ski-ing. Forecast for some low temperatures with increasing risk of upper atmosphere instablity during the week.

Guten Tag,

10cm of fresh snowfall earlier, clouds now clearing. Very cold low last night of -14C. Current temperature -9C.

The Latest forecast for Christmas period is for much milder conditions with the snow level rising between 1000-2500m

with 20% chance of staying cold. I reckon a 40% of staying cold for you in the UK !

Anyway, what will be , will be be. Enjoy when it comes.

    Heat building - But not before a northwestern soaking

    The weather has thrown up two things to focus on during the coming hours and days. First the rain across the north and especially northwest of the UK, with some heavy, persistent downpours today in western Scotland in particular. Second, the build of heat later this week from the south, with temperatures forecast to rise into the mid-thirties, for some at least, by Friday. Read the full update here
