A new Arctic blast towards central Europe and Mediterranean early next week

Models are in good agreement for a new cold Arctic blast towards the central Europe and Mediterranean later this weekend and early next week, as a strong cold front will be pushed from the north on Sunday through Monday and Tuesday, pushing all the way south towards the SW Balkan peninsula and S Italy. It will bring fresh snow into the Alps as well as some fresh snow also into higher terrain of WSW Balkan peninsula including W Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, SW Serbia, Montenegro and surroundings. GFS model for example is simulating excessive amounts of snow (50+ cm) across W Balkan peninsula (SW Bosnia, Montenegro).

Behind the cold front, strong NNE flow will drop temperatures well below average, so expect a cold next week with a lot of frost locally! Refer to other posts for temperature outlooks.
