A wintery cold outbreak is about to reach the Mediterranean

  • | Premium

    As we said earlier, a severe cold wave is going to come back to the Mediterranean bringing wintery sceneries on the way.

    We will start to feel the first effects on Sunday, March 22nd, when it will begin to get worse with the first showers and a sensible drop in temperatures.

    As we can see, that happens because of a strong high-pressure bridge that is currently moving towards the Scandinavian and the Baltic sea

    Consequently, cold air, first of Arctic origin, then from Siberia, will start to come down along its right edge, crossing the east Europe and reaching the Balkans.

    In fact, we expect an increase in ventilation from east and the strong thermic contrasts will give the right energy for wintery phenomena, such as thunderstorms and snowfalls.

    Therefore, the next week will be quite unsettled and the mild temperatures of these last days will be a good memory.

    Moreover, the cold wave will reach a peak between Tuesday, March 24th, and Wednesday, March 25th, with wind gusts up to 100km/h over the Adriatic and heavy snowfalls up to sea level over the Adriatic regions.

    Let’s take our coat and scarf out of the wardrobe, spring is going to take a break along southern latitudes, though it won't be a good thing for the
    agriculture and the spread of coronavirus.
