The weather will be more than “fierce” in the coming days based on the estimates of meteorologists.
Detailed and according to the forecast data of the National Observatory of Athens / meteo.gr the guidance of cold gas masses to the country that started with the bad weather “Diomidis” (10-12 / 01/2022), to continue in waves and during new week.
Extension of measures against the pandemic until January 23
In fact, the chances are high that the cold invasion that will occur on the weekend 22-23 / 01, is not the most intense as it will transport marine polar gas masses.
The torrent effect
But what is the reason that this type of air circulation is obsessive? The answer lies 10 kilometers above the earth’s surface and in torrent motion. The torrent is a strong stream of air at a height of about 10 kilometers from the earth’s surface moving from west to east. The movement of the torrent determines the creation and movement of the barometric systems.
In recent days, the political torrent from Canada to Europe has been displaced from its average climatic position in the region of Western Europe.
This results in the development of high pressures in Central and Western Europe where good weather conditions, droughts and at times high temperatures for the season prevail. Further east, however, in Scandinavia and western Russia, the torrent is turning south, transporting souls of air masses in newer waves, a pattern to be maintained.
On Sunday 16/1 the first of a new series of cold invasions took place, which was dry and was not accompanied by phenomena. The two-day Tuesday 18/01 – Wednesday 19/01 will be followed by a second cold invasion, slightly stronger, which will give temporary effects in Eastern and Southern Greece, between the temporary snowfall in areas of Evia and Eastern Sterea with relatively low altitude. Finally, from Saturday 22/01, a third, even stronger cold invasion may occur, which shows increased chances of snowfall even in lowland parts. However, details regarding the quality characteristics and the areas that will be affected will be given in new announcements.
The following video shows the movement of cold gas masses over Europe, from noon on Sunday 16/1 to noon on Saturday 22/1, as shown at the level of 850 hPa (approximately at an altitude of 1500 meters).
