Power of incoming coldwaves in Europe is documenting a map of expected snowing occurrence of snowfall from - until 5. January (next 16 days) is snow expected almost in all Europe, what is evidence of cold phase of circulation over Northern Hemisphere.

Although a week before the Christmas, extremely warm winter weather surprised not only Mediterranean (Kerkyra, Greece, +22,2°C Palma de Mallorca, +20,2°C, but too Norway - Tafjord with anomalous +17,0°C!), very good news for lovers of winter are coming - next decrease of AO and NAO indices will be accompanied with big cooldown at Christmas 2020 and strong frosts during celebration night from 31.
