Extremely cold weather has arrived at the end of Summer 2021 and will be continuing in parts of continental Europe until minimally 2. September 2021.
Until this date, maximum temperatures below +10°C in the region are possible near cyclonic weather with rains, winds, cloudiness, and low real-feel temperatures. Minimum temperatures are even lower /https://mkweather.com/first-frosts-and-ground-frosts-are-here-extremely-cold-weather-in-continental-europe-will-continue-until-1-september-weather-maps/; https://mkweather.com/winter-is-coming-southern-norway-43c-filefjell-drevsjo-30c-only-13c-above-all-time-august-record// – a list of extreme maximum temperatures below.
It´s possible, that in the next 5 days, these national TOPs will be even lower – central parts of the continent will be situated on the backside of the slowly shifting cyclonic system from Central to Eastern Europe.
Relatively colder weather should stay in Central Europe until 5. September, around 5.-9. September shorter heatwave with summer temperatures above +25°C is possible.
Iceland and the UK, and soon Scandinavia too, however, are enjoying hot summer weather /https://mkweather.com/iceland-the-hottest-august-day-in-history-284c-while-europe-is-shivering-from-winter-scotland-272c-the-warmest-august-day-in-the-uk-extremely-hot-should-be-in-iceland-until-10// thanks to anticyclonic weather.
Storms and floods have already shifted above parts of the Mediterranean and in southern Europe, the next severe storms are in the next period possible /https://mkweather.com/flood-risk-in-the-southern-half-of-europe-in-the-next-period-cooldown-already-brought-floods-in-marseille-and-barcelona-regions-france-spain//.
If you live in the region from France to Ukraine and from Lapland to Italy and Greece, do not underrate the coldwave and dress warm, because the virological situation is worsening during cold weather. In the winter, during coldwaves is the situation with the effect of cold on diseases even worse /some information in our older article https://mkweather.com/heart-attack-influenza-cancer-frostbites-hypothermia-covid-what-you-should-to-know-about-arctic-and-siberian-coldwaves//.
