Seasonal Outlook: The Weather Company Says Warmth and Dryness to Persist in Eastern Europe This Autumn

Cooler than Normal Weather to be Focused in Western Europe Next Few Months

Andover, MA, 22 August 2017 — For the aggregate September-November period, The Weather Company, an IBM Business, is forecasting above-normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation across the eastern half of Europe and western Russia, with aggregate below-normal temperatures limited to U.K., Iberia, and the western mainland.

“We’ve finally seen the emergence of long-awaited North Atlantic blocking in late July and August, which has resulted in cooler and wetter conditions for parts of western Europe,” said Dr. Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist with The Weather Company. “However, the hot and dry summer has persisted in Southeast Europe, and the warm, dry weather looks to continue there this autumn. As we head into the colder months of the year, we expect slightly below-normal temperatures to continue across western Europe, but don’t foresee any extreme early-season winter cold. While there are some indications that this winter may be colder overall than the last few, most of the evidence still suggests another mild winter in most locations, especially in eastern Europe.”

For the September-November 2017 period, The Weather Company is forecasting the following temperatures:

September

  • Nordic region – Cooler than normal
  • U.K. – Cooler than normal
  • Northern Mainland – Warmer than normal east, cooler west
  • Southern Mainland – Warmer than normal

 

October

  • Nordic region – Warmer than normal
  • U.K. – Cooler than normal
  • Northern Mainland – Warmer than normal east, cooler west
  • Southern Mainland – Cooler than normal, except central regions

 

November

  • Nordic region – Warmer than normal
  • U.K. – Slightly colder than normal
  • Northern Mainland – Colder than normal
  • Southern Mainland – Warmer than normal east, cooler than normal east
