Talvituv jäälinnupaar saaki püüdmas. Õnneks olid nad ka edukad

An outbreak of cold airmass is moving towards the central Europe tonight where the cold front and secondary cyclogenesis over the northern Mediterranean will bring a new round of snow to the region. Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will see significant snowfall until late on Friday.As the coming cold front passes across the Alps, secondary cyclogenesis takes place over the Ligurian sea, forming a rather weak Genoa low. The low persists over the region, pushing into the Tyrrhenian sea, while another, very shallow cyclone forms over the Adriatic sea. The frontal passage and cutoff low bring the first significant snowfall of the winter to parts of Slovenia. Slovenia will likely receive significant snowfall down into lower elevations, except for […]

Metskitsi märkame enamasti metsaservades ja põllul, kuid toimetada meeldib neile ka varju pakkuvates võsa- ja põõsastikes.
Kui seda saab niimoodi nimetada, siis jah, see oli võlumaa kus ma täna pool tunnikest veetsin.
Weather patterns this winter have been supporting ridging over the north Atlantic and western Europe for weeks. But this is gradually changing this week as ridge is retreating towards the west and troughs / cyclones with cold fronts are being pushed into western Europe as well. One system reaches the British Isles this Friday, bringing some snow into the region. Here is the GFS model probability map of falling snow through Thursday night over parts of Ireland while some additional chances for Scotland and England come on Friday afternoon during the front passage. Comparison of various models (GFS, HIRLAM, ARPEGE, ICON-EU) regarding the snow depth through Thursday night and Friday evening. Indeed not much of snow, likely only a few […]
Latest thoughts on the much colder and locally snowy weather across the western half of Europe through the weekend and into next week, Jan 18-24th
Global models are now in very good agreement about the cold weather through second half of January, the results of Polar Vortex split earlier this months are coming into effect for the lower troposphere. Cold winter weather should spread across the western half of Europe as a favorable pattern establishes after this weekend. Ridge over the northwest Atlantic with deep troughs across western towards southwestern Europe should bring both very cold and snowy weather locally. The first event will be a cyclone passage across the UK and Ireland this Friday, arriving just a day after the cold outbreak across the region. Despite the quite strong warm advection associated with the frontal system, the airmass should remain quite cold! Models are […]
Finally, cold weather is also here for the western half of Europe, especially Scotland, England, Ireland and Benelux. A rather strong outbreak of cold airmass is being advected into the region on the rear side of a deep trough / cyclone across northern Europe. Meridionally transported flow pushes Arctic airmass through the western Europe towards south. Very cold airmass will start spreading from north to south tonight, reaching south Scotland around midnight. Very cold northerly winds will push cold weather south into Ireland and England until the late morning hours. Advection then continues into Benelux, France and Germany later tomorrow. 850 mb temperature should be quite cold over the western Europe, locally -8 to -9 °C at this level (approx. […]
