Less Precipitation & Warmer Temperatures Predicted For 2016
Dreary ‘ol London?
Maybe not this winter.
An early forecast from AccuWeather.com, predicts London – and also Paris, two of Europe’s top travel destinations – will be having warmer and dryer weather this winter.
“High pressure to the north of the United Kingdom for much of the winter season will result in a very typical winter for parts of northwest Europe with stretches of tranquil weather and overall near-normal temperatures,” AccuWeather stated in a press release.
It predicts just five days of snow and ice from November thru March for both London and Paris.
According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alan Reppert, “The United Kingdom and Ireland look to avoid the worst storm impacts as most of the storm systems track to the south across France and northern Spain.
Extreme cold is also expected to be limited for northwest Europe as the core of the cold air builds over Scandinavia and then is unleashed southward with only brief periods of below-normal temperatures reaching northwest Europe.
The one exception will be Ireland and Scotland where colder-than-normal water temperatures in the North Atlantic will keep high temperatures below normal for much of the winter. Overnight low temperatures will still be near normal.
