What is the weather like in the cold months? The experts venture an outlook. A weather model even predicts a record winter.
Kassel – The sunny autumn weather is currently giving us golden October days. Nevertheless, the weather experts dare to take a look at the winter and make a dramatic forecast. As a result, things are not looking so good for snow lovers.
Looking at the various weather models, we are facing a record winter – as far as temperatures are concerned. These should be extremely mild, reports qualified meteorologist Dominik Jung from wetter.net.
Weather forecast: Winter could be a record winter with mild temperatures
Accordingly, according to the US weather service NOAA, the winter should be 2 degrees warmer than the climate mean. The climate average for the years 1991 to 2020 is considered here. Should this really occur, the coming winter would end up in the top 5 of the warmest winters since 1881 and surpass the previous mild winters. You couldn’t wish for anything better when it comes to heating due to the extreme rise in oil, gas and electricity prices.
“A record-breaking winter is definitely possible, but not in terms of cold, but rather in terms of warmth. That would definitely be a good thing for our energy costs,” says weather expert Jung. However, it should be borne in mind that the forecast is only a climate trend and not a fixed weather forecast. In September, European weather models had still forecast an average winter in terms of temperature and precipitation.
In combination with the measured values of the last few years, the trends in the weather models are hardly surprising according to experts. Accordingly, a winter that is too cold is quite unlikely. However, icy weather sections are definitely possible, as confirmed by the experts at wetter.de. (hg)
