German online weather site wetteronline.de here warns that winter is set dash any hopes of an early spring in Western and Central Europe.
Europeans in general enjoyed a mild winter this year. But apparently it looks like it’s set to get colder and snowier as the calendar turns to March.
The site writes that the mild weather of the past weekend will be pushed out of Central Europe by Arctic wind and snow by Wednesday, as the following wetteronline chart illustrates:
Wetteronline.de says that today will see very springlike temperatures down in southern Germany, with readings reaching above 15°C. But it adds the weather will cool with each passing day – with “snow reaching down into the lowlands” already by Tuesday. It warns of heavy snowshowers by midweek.
The good news is that Europe will have a chance to dry out as high pressure pumps in drier air. Early March is forecast to be more on the wintry side. Wetteronline writes of “snowfalls down to the lower elevations with high temperatures near 5°C likely“.
