Temperature drop by up to 25 degrees: Winter is coming back – with permafrost and snowfall
Friday, February 26th, 1.40 p.m .: The Sahara warmth tore Germany from the cold hands of winter within days. Temperatures have risen by up to 30 degrees. But now winter could return with full severity. Temperatures could change by 25 degrees again within a week. Only this time it’s going downhill – according to meteorologist Jan Schenk, there could be a first cold spell from Wednesday and Thursday. The expert also considers snowfall at higher altitudes to be possible.
According to Schenk, things will be particularly exciting on the first weekend in March: Arctic air could flow into Germany and bring permafrost and daytime temperatures between minus 5 and minus 6 degrees Celsius. Other weather models predict warmer temperatures, but it should definitely be frosty. You can see more about the possible cold snap in the video above.
Historical temperature increase of more than 40 degrees in one week
Tuesday, February 23, 11.49 a.m .: First freezing frost, then sunshine and mild spring weather: Within a few days, the weather in Germany has turned a record. This is what the climate researchers from the German Weather Service calculated. The temperature has never risen as sharply within seven days since the start of the recordings as the measured values now confirmed by the Göttingen weather station. While a low of minus 23.8 degrees was measured there on February 14, the high on February 21 was 18.1 degrees – an increase of 41.9 degrees.
In order to find something even remotely comparable, the weather researchers had to go way back in time: The previous record was set in May 1880, i.e. in the early days of weather records. At that time, a temperature increase of 41 degrees was measured within seven days, said a spokesman for the DWD.
In northern Germany, according to the information, two regional heat records were also measured in winter on Monday: In Quickborn in Schleswig-Holstein the maximum value was 18.9 degrees and was thus still above the record value of 17.8 degrees measured two years earlier. In Hamburg, even 21.1 degrees were measured at the Neuwiedenthal weather station on Monday. The previous record at the same station of 18.1 degrees at the same station a good year earlier was “pulverized”, according to a DWD spokesman. “For the first time since the beginning of temperature recordings, the temperature in Hamburg has risen above 20 degrees in winter.”
