Strong pattern dividing Europe in two halfs – cold to the east, warm to the west

An interesting pattern is developing across Europe with a strenghtening upper ridge across N Atlantic and western Europe while a very deep upper level low is moving across ESE Europe. In between, a cold polar airmass has been advecting across central Europe and Balkan peninsula and should continue until Wednesday. Cold frosty mornings are expected and some snow as well, especially where northerlies will advect moisture into the mountainous terrain e.g. N Alps, Tatras mountains, Carpathian mointains, parts of Turkey…

This strong pattern should gradually weaken by Wednesday when upper low moves further east into central Europe and deep upper low moves off the SE Europe.

Stay tuned for further updates on the evolution of the pattern.
