An unusual very warm period develops across east-central Europe through the remainder of December

The first 2019/20 winter month in Europe will be just another one in the line with above normal average monthly temperature! While it has been dynamic over the North Atlantic and western Europe lately, similar pattern will likely continue for another week or possibly even two. Such pattern means deep trough over the North Atlantic with numerous storms into western Europe and ridging further east – in other words, unusually warm weather for east-central and southern Europe is expected. Models are trending into an incredible warmth developing this week!
