April 3rd – another very cold morning across parts of Europe, but the cold pool is vanishing as spring weather returns this weekend

Yet another very cold morning in parts of central Europe and the Balkans today, Apr 3rd. Numerous stations were experiencing close or even below -5 °C, with strong frost observed as relative humidity was higher compared to the previous days. Saturday will again bring quite cold and frosty morning in some regions, but less intense than these days. The cold outbreak is then finished and will be replaced with much warmer temperatures after Sunday. Cold weather will, however, remain over the southeast Europe.
