A new warm spell expected next week over most of Europe

A new potentially record-breaking warm spell is increasingly likely to develop across a large part of Europe next week with temperatures several degrees above average for late October.

🔥 A new very strong upper-level ridge will develop into the European continent and will pump a plume of very warm air north from northern Africa across most of Europe next week.
Temperatures are modelled to reach the high 20s across large part of Europe, as the plume of exceptionally warm air spreads north.
The warm air mass will spread across southern and central Europe and will also reach northern Europe by the end of next week.
It seems that the warmest air mass will be across the central parts of the continent, especially over France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and even further north over Scandinavia with even more than 12°C above normal for late-October.

🌡 It will be very mild for this time of the year, with highest temperatures locally above 30 degrees in some locations over Spain and southwestern France.
Yesterday 21 October temperatures rose again above 30°C in France and Spain.
In France Ceret jumped to 30.5°C and Le Boulou to 30.2°C.
Pollenca in Mallorca Island (Spain) rose to 31.0°C.
Temperatures will be several degrees above average every day until the end of October.
