Just curious what was the heighest amounts recorded in Europe I had heard some people saw up to 2 meters but was not sure if that was all in one storm or the snow depth?


There were a series of storms, 3 in fact:

Here is the evolution of the snow cover from January 19th to February 14th. It is clearly visible how the snow layer increased in one month.

Warm-up this week all over Europe. The biggest question of all, is this Spring or not?
Judging by these, it looks like Spring, but maybe there are still some surprises left in March.

Okay so those high snow amounjts I read about were from the 3 storms combined or snow depth. Still amazing though those depths. Hopefully for you guys it a slow warmup or else some flooding could occur.

Hello,

Interesting to note as snow storms overlapped with negative AO index.
Do you think that winter blocking pattern was generated only by this?
Maybe combined with LA NINA air circulation?

Am interesting article here:
http://www.3bmeteo.com/giornale-meteo/onda...a-storia--56333
Above all, it notes the simmilarities between the February 2012 cold event and other cold events like the ones in January 1985 and February 1956.

Looks like it, anyway for the next few days we are expecting +10C to +15C. Probably in March there will be nights with temperatures of -10C in some areas but I doubt that the long term cold will be back.

Difficult to say. As far as I understand from 3bmeteo.com, it looks like Spring will come in March.
Until March 4th, warm air will be centered over the Mediteranean, France, Germany, while the Balkans will see come cold air (generally I think there will be colder nights, positive temperatures durring the day as the sun's radiation is beginning to be intense).
After March 4th it looks like warm air will spread once again over the Balkans.

The averages for the month of February published by NOAA.

Very dry in France, Spain, Germany, Northern Italy and well above normal precipitation in the Balkans, Romania, South Italy, Greece. Actually the path of the snowstorms in the Balkans is pretty clear on the map (Blue)

Attached Image

As for temperatures, well below average during February with the worst of the cold over Ukraine, East and South Romania, Northern Serbia (7C below average)

Attached Image

The recent warming which I think is the end of winter has decreased significantly the snow depth over Europe. On March 1st snow has melted over much of Europe, it raimains over Northern Europe, and the Balkan area, Romania, Ukraine but in smaller quantities.

Attached Image



In Romania, the snow is melting in the areas affected by the blizzards in February. In Bucharest out of 72cm , 24cm remain. The snow should melt completely in the next 2 days. Other areas in Southern Romania have lost the 50-60cm February snow cover.
