Many people would long for it. But what are the chances of a white Christmas in Germany? A meteorologist made a clear prediction.
- Frosty temperatures recently determined the weather * in Germany and provided snow at higher altitudes.
- Will there be a white Christmas in the Corona * year 2020?
- The chances of snow on December 24th are not very good.
Munich – May people in Germany in 2020 white Christmas looking forward? After autumn had shown its mild side at the beginning, the cooler temperatures have picked up a little in the past few days. Ex-hurricane “Eta” caused hurricane-like gusts and frosty temperatures. Snow fell in the higher elevations of Bavaria *. But what are the forecasts for the December 24th out?
Weather in Germany: “Glimmer of hope” for Nicholas – “Snow line could …”
At the beginning of the month December the temperatures in parts of Germany should be mild, as meteorologist Corinna Borau von wetter.com forecast. So be “Even at the beginning of December there is no big onset of winter in sight”. However, Borau mentions December 6th, St. Nicholas Day, as a “glimmer of hope”.
“At least in the higher elevations” it could then be wintry. Responsible for this is a low pressure area north of Germany, which causes polar air. “The snow line could then drop to 500 meters or slightly below”. The prospects stand up along the Rhine or on the coasts of Germany snow However, this is rather bad, as the meteorologist explains.
Weather: Snow at Christmas? – Expert with a clear forecast for Germany
“A weather situation that occurs quite often in the weather models in December is low air pressure north of us and high pressure south of us,” explains Borau. Germany is thus in a “mild west to south-west current”. Like the long-term model of the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) It can be seen that precipitation in the north is rather changeable, but slightly too dry in the south.
The weather conditions Christmas look similar to the meteorologist. Also on December 24th, a “rather warm south-westerly current” is expected “Typical Christmas thaw” pass. “It doesn’t look really winterly snowy there,” the experts made a clear forecast.
White Christmas 2020? The prognosis looks rather bad
Also the temperature deviations of the long-term model NOAA do not have high hopes for a snowy Christmas. Be over large parts of Central Europe and Germany positive temperatures forecast. “And that means that the chances for a green Christmas continue to increase,” concluded Borau.
A weather expert also mentioned a trend that should surprise many. But the real “winter feeling” will probably not arise at Christmas in 2020 either. As in 2019, snow will probably remain in short supply. * Merkur.de is part of the nationwide Ippen-Digital editors network (mbr)
