Cold wave coming for large parts of Europe

A major wave of cool polar airmass will spread across central, eastern and southeastern Europe over the next few days, starting tomorrow. Expect temperatures well below average for this time of the year, up to 6-10 °C below average. Many areas are likely to see frost in the morning.

Models are still on track for establishment of a strong pattern over Europe with a broad low pressure area over the eastern half and a strengthening ridge over the western half. Meridional flow will establish, with cool airmass advecting from the polar regions into much of central, eastern and southeastern Europe. Temperatures will be up to up to 6-10 °C below average.
