A short winter greeting in the middle of the week

After a quiet start to the week, a somewhat more exciting phase will follow in the middle of the week. According to the latest model data, the snow line will drop to around 500 meters in some areas during the night to Wednesday. Along the Alps and in eastern Switzerland, there is likely to be a white awakening at slightly higher altitudes on Wednesday morning. However, an intermediate high will put an end to the brief intermezzo on Thursday.

Extremely mild first half of February!

The first half of February was extremely mild, with an excess of between around 3 and 7 degrees and an average of more than 5 degrees across Switzerland. In the second half, the excess dropped slightly, but it was clearly the mildest February for the whole of Switzerland since measurements began in 1864! Temperatures were quite widely higher than the average for March! There was sometimes too little precipitation in the north, but clearly too much in the south. Finally, the sun shone about as often as normal on the Swiss Plateau, but less frequently in other areas.

Together with 2019/2020, mildest winter since start of measurements!

The meteorological winter that ended yesterday (December to February) was around 2.7 degrees too mild compared to the long-term average from 1991 to 2020. This makes the winter of 2023/2024, together with the winter of 2019/2020, the mildest since measurements began in 1864. With the exception of February, there was too much precipitation, with December in particular being significantly too wet. Finally, the sun shone less frequently than normal in every winter month, with February in particular being far too cloudy.

Unspectacular week in the north, greater amounts of precipitation in the south

The last week of February and, from a meteorological point of view, the last week of winter is not very spectacular in the north. Clouds often dominate, but there is little precipitation. The situation is different in the south. After a wet start to the week, the weather only calms down briefly in the middle of the week and the next congestion situation is already on the horizon for the coming weekend.

No stable weather in sight

Stable weather is not in sight in the coming days, with the most sunshine likely on Saturday. It will also be occasionally wet, especially with a warm front today (Thursday) and a cold front tomorrow night (Friday) and tomorrow morning in the south and Graubünden. There will also be intermittent precipitation, especially in the south and west on Monday. Maximum temperatures will mostly be in the single digits in the north from tomorrow, but at just under 10 degrees it won't be very cool and will still be slightly above normal for the time of year.

An ever earlier spring – good or bad?

One of the mildest winters on record is having an impact on nature: As has often been the case in recent years, nature has woken up very early, which is also reflected in the fact that hay fever symptoms have been on the rise for some time now and many spring flowers are already blooming in gardens and parks. Winters are becoming milder and milder as a result of climate change, which means that nature is waking up earlier and earlier and the growing season is being extended. This has a variety of effects, both positive and negative.

Unspectacular at first, potentially dangerous in the middle of the week!

In the Swiss Plateau, there will be room for sunshine between the clouds today, but along the Alps it will be very cloudy – and there will be some snow in places. Tomorrow, an intermediate high will ensure fairly sunny conditions. Things will get exciting on Wednesday – a warm front is likely to create good conditions for dangerous freezing rain in parts of the Swiss Plateau.

Low pressure weather over the weekend

Until the weekend, our weather will essentially be determined by a low pressure system located in the nearby Atlantic/Great Britain. It will bring us a lot of precipitation in the south, with southerly to south-westerly high winds at the southern slope of the Alps until Saturday, while in the north it will bring a foehn wind and only a little rain. In the night to Sunday, the foehn will break down and it will also be wet in the north. On Sunday, the precipitation will move eastwards again relatively quickly. At the beginning of the coming week, the air pressure will rise, but initially the air will still be somewhat humid, but from the middle of the week it will be drier again, especially at higher altitudes. From Sunday, especially from Tuesday, temperatures will be somewhat lower in the north, but without it becoming exceptionally cool.

AMOC – the heating of Europe

Global flow patterns exist not only in the atmosphere, but also in the oceans. These span the entire world and connect all the oceans with each other. In addition to winds and the Coriolis force, thermohaline circulation is the main driving force behind this. A new study on the possible overturning of the AMOC (Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation) means that it is now back in the headlines. But what exactly is this about?

Stormy start to November with storm Ciarán in Western Europe

Tomorrow Wednesday, a big storm named Ciarán will form over the Atlantic under rapid strengthening, which will subsequently move over southern England to the North Sea during the night on Thursday and on Thursday, bringing gale-force winds of up to about 150 km/h in parts, especially in southern England and northern France, and here especially in Brittany. Associated with this are also in the western English Channel and on the west coast of France also high waves of over 10 meters in places.

World Meteorology Day and 150th anniversary of an international meteorological community

World Meteorological Day takes place every year on March 23. With the convention of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which came into force in 1950, the cooperation of a wide range of nations should lead to more reliable weather forecasts. This year, World Meteorological Day takes place under the motto "the future of weather, climate and water over generations".
