We were thinking, if will make several articles about expected extreme winter conditions across Northern Hemisphere in Feburary 2021 for continents alone, or one, summarizing article – because extreme cold air will be minimally until 20. February almost everywhere!
From Europe through Asia to North America and in northern Africa partly, yet – a belt of Arctic and Siberian winter will hit many parts of mid-latitudes mainly between 5.-20. February 2021, although severe frosts are expected at the beginning of the month e.g. in Scandinavia, Central Europe, Northeast in the USA and neighboring part of Canada or northern China and Far East.
Outputs below are showing, how will be situation between 5.-16. February 2021 during the coldest times across Northern Hemisphere.
Firstly, extreme coldwave hits the USA and Canada, gradually, Siberian winter comes back into Europe and there will be times, when temperature should be very close to -60°C in Eastern Siberia.
Not only Northern Hemisphere is since late December 2020 the coldest for many years /https://mkweather.com/2021/01/24/antarctica-set-to-coldest-january-since-1978-southern-hemisphere-hasnt-been-so-cold-almost-10-years//.
While in China, frosts up to -50°C should appear again /https://mkweather.com/2021/02/01/china-with-the-lowest-temperatures-for-41-years-1980-tulihe-463c// and Siberia mentioned -60°C should reach after many years, in Rocky Mountains, USA, temperatures up to -45°C are possible, in Canada -55°C, maybe -60°C, in Scandinavia below -40°C and in continental Europe around -30°C in frost basins and valleys are during upcoming coldwaves possible.
Extreme winter is confirming day after day and very soon we will report many new temperature extremes around the world, therefore, big summary of extreme Major SSW of Winter 2020/2021 will be updated /https://mkweather.com/2021/01/14/big-extreme-frosts-summary-temperature-records-from-europe-and-northern-hemisphere-during-the-first-half-of-the-peak-of-winter-2020-21//.
