Another intense Arctic cold outbreak pushing into Europe


Just a couple of days after record-breaking cold hit much of Europe, bringing heavy rain, a lot of snow and below average temperatures, another shot of cold Arctic air will push toward continental Europe from May 11 through 14.

Temperatures across Europe are still below average for the time of year, but yet another push of very cold Arctic air will start affecting NW Europe on May 11 and 12, and push down to central regions and all the way down to northern Africa by May 13 and 14.

Heavy rain, snow and frost are expected.

A notably warm period is expected from May 21 through 26.

Here are just some of the effects of the previous cold outbreak:
