Easter week will be colder than last Christmas week in many European countries, due to an Arctic outbreak that will bring back cold weather to central and eastern Europe.
❄️ After last week’s temporary comeback to winter over most of Europe, another cold spell is forecast for next week.
An Arctic air mass will spread across northern and central Europe early next week and will affect weather especially over the Balkans and eastern Europe until Easter.
The frigid air from the Arctic will result in some late frosts in places.
Temperatures of even lower than 10°C below zero at the 850 mbar level, approximately 1200 m above sea level, are forecast.
By day, temperatures could be up to -5°C degress below average over many countries of central Europe, whereas over the Balkans and eastern Europe they will be up to -8°C below average.
This cold spell will spread across northern and central Europe starting from early next week and will expand further east and south by the middle of next week.
Around mid-next week the cold air mass will spread as far east and south as to southern Balkans, Cyprus and Turkey.
As in the last cold spell, Spain and Portugal will be excluded from the Arctic air mass.
