Europe could face a warmer than average winter season

Europe could face a warmer than average winter season
Oct 14 2022 Share

Europe’s winter season could be overall warmer than average when compared to previous end of the year periods, with one higher-than-usual cold blast also being forecasted before 2023 rolls through. 

This could somewhat ease worries for leaders as European policymakers are currently seeking to figure out energy crises management due to cuts in Russian gas supplies.

Carlo Buontempo, director of the Copernicus Climate Change Service, said that we can see winter as warmer than usual. ‘Nevertheless there is a still a significant chance of a block situation, which can lead to cold temperatures and low wind over Europe.’ 

The blocking pattern may see a stable, often wind-free weather accompanied by freezing temperatures. The service provides seasonal forecasts for the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts. 

The forecasts by the ECMWF are based on indicators such as ocean and atmospheric temperatures, as well as wind speeds in the stratosphere, but do not have the accuracy of short-range reports.

Winter in Europe was expected to be warmer than usual due to a global weather phenomenon known as ‘La Nina’, which is related to the cooling surface temperatures in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean.

Camilleri, who is responsible over the Paceville area, revealed that this phenomenon has been observed abroad in various countries, but there have been none detected in Malta so far. Camilleri told the newsroom that police force eyes are wide open for any such behaviour.

He also revealed that from the group violence incidents observed, they have been only one-offs and concerned controlled situations. He said that these gang formations would instil fear were they to form in the local community.
