Do you have friends in Europe? I hope they brought big coats, gloves, hats, umbrellas, and if they live their snow shovels. A Siberian cold wave is coming East and it’s going to put a lot of countries in the deep freeze. I’m talking anywhere from -18 to -20 degrees below normal. Look at Italy? Even the southern parts will feel like they live in the Italian Alps. Look at Greece. The Parthenon will be frozen solid. They might even get snow showers in Athens.
In the British Isles, there is a threat of upwards of a foot of snow up into Scotland and even a good chunk of IRELAND. Yes, the my Irish might will get a belt of Guinness hunkering down in their thatched roof houses but have to go out and shovel that white stuff. They won’t know what to do with it!
This is in part of the strong blocking that has already started further north, but like how we get shots of cold air from Canada this is Europe’s version of the deep freeze courtesy of Siberia.
