Mkweather soon will bring a 6-week forecast from ECMWF, but for now, it appears, that September will be warmer, and the worsening of weather will be more significant in October 2021. At the end of August and in early September 2021 however, a powerful cooldown is forecasted for Eastern Europe, with a possibility of the first ground frosts or rare frosts in northern regions. East-Central Europe will be partially hit by this cooldown, too.
