Another windstorm, although without a name, bothers northwestern Europe.
In Cairngorm, UK (1245 MASL), wind gusts have reached 167 km/h on Tuesday, 17. November 2020, what is the highest value since 1. November, when British Islands hit Windstorm Aiden.
In Andoya-Trolltinden, Norway (436 MASL) wind gusts have reached 130 km/h on Tuesday, Kilpisjarvi Saana, Finland reports 115 km/h.
For last 30 days, was even 20 days with wind gusts higher than 100 km/h in Cairngorm (100 – 184 km/h), what documents untraditionally dynamic conditions over Northern Atlantic.
It is already 17. November and European coast is still hit by powerful cyclones and cold fronts strengthened by remnants of ex-hurricanes (lastly joined to cold front over Northern Atlantic remnants of ex-hurricane Eta).
Outlook for northeastern Europe is still very windy – thanks to large polar vortex sector, which is shifting towards Europe and brings extreme coldwaves between 20. November and minimally 15. December 2020.
