The first frosts and ground frosts are here! Extremely cold weather in continental Europe will continue until 1. September! (+weather maps)

In a series of the last articles, we informed about extreme late-Summer and early Autumn coldwave, which hit Europe in the third August decade.

Only on Sunday, 22. August 2021, -4,3°C was measured in southern Norway and Drevsjo reported almost the coldest August day in history (-3,0°C; 1,3°C from the record) /

Big parts of continental Europe are still under and effect of a cyclonic system, with regional heavy rains and cloudiness and the coldest mornings, should only come in the next few days.

Maximum temperatures in Central Europe are locally reaching only +10°C and in the next few days, it should be rarely only +8°C.

Cold weather in continental Europe from eastern France to western Ukraine is forecasted until 1. September 2021, for now, and 6, in Central Europe extremely cold days, are only waiting for us. Daily temperatures in many regions should be reaching only +8/+14°C, in warmer parts, it will be only +14/+19°C, what are values typical for November / October.

If you live in continental Europe, don´t forget therefore to warm clothes – summer weather with summer days above +25°C in warmer regions however will return already during the first school days.
