“There could well be a white surprise in the north as well. This is because we are still dealing with a polar air mass, ”explains meteorologist Alban Burster from wetter.com: “It comes pouring in from the northwest in the direction of Germany. And then it keeps pushing against the low mountain ranges and the Alps. The result: Continuous snowfall. Not only in the south, but also soon – presumably – in the north. “
