While over central parts Europe were temperatures milder, e.g. Liesek, Slovakia on Tuesday -13,7°C or Suwalki, Poland and Pec pod Sněžkou, Czechia, on Wednesday, -12,9°C and -11,6°C, Baltic states reached below -20°C, with –21,8°C in Zoseni, Latvia, -20,6°C in Narva, Estonia (Lithuania and Belarus were warmer, with -15,6°C in Varena and -14,5°C in Lyntupy).
In Scandinavia and European Russia was even colder – in Vilegodskoe, Russia, -40,9°C, in Nyrud, Norway, -32,3°C or in Alvsbyn, Sweden, -31,1°C on Wednesday, but with extremely low temperature in Finland, only -38,9°C in Kuhmo, what is the lowest temperature in March in the country since 1998!
Before mentioned windstorm, warm advection with short duration is expected in continental Europe on Thursday, but gradually, already from Wednesday to Thursday and then on Friday, too, Europe hit damaging windstorm, with wind gusts100 – 160 km/h in the UK, Ireland, France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Denmark and southern Norway and southern Sweden (and partly later the Alps, Bohemian Massif, the Carpathians, Poland or Baltic region), therefore be prepared not only to end of severe frosts, but too for regionally devastating windstorm.
