The weather over the weekend is characterized by unusually strong contrasts: snow and black snow hit parts of Germany, and it can reach 20 degrees near the Alps. The reason for Capricorn weather is two air masses with very different temperatures that will shape the weather in the north and south of Germany – and especially where they meet. In northern and eastern Germany, temperatures are expected to be below freezing point, while in the south it is sometimes as warm as spring. In the middle, where cold and summers meet, sometimes intense rainfall occurs. On the hot side it falls in the form of rain, on the cold side as snow and even as cold rain, Both of which can carry storm-proportional proportions.
Dichotomy can already be seen now. An almost dead straight boundary extends from East Frisia to Saxon Switzerland, where the temperature rises several degrees: up to ten degrees on the Rhine just above the freezing point in the north. However, this difference will become even more pronounced. The reason for this is two opposite circulation patterns, Whose contact area is between germans over the weekend. There is a high pressure area above Scandinavia, around which the wind flows clockwise, allowing cold air from the northeast to reach northern Germany. At the same time, Tristan Low is located in Western Europe, which brings warm, humid air from the southeast.
It is difficult to predict where the contact area will grow over the next few days. In any case, over the weekend, the first foothills of Tristan reach Germany and bring heavy rainfall to the border between hot and cold. According to the forecast, up to 40 cm of fresh snow is more possible, and there is a risk of snow drift due to fresh air. Which areas receive heavy rainfall and where there is snow and all the snowfall from above is still unclear. It is most likely that the air mass range extends from the Ruhr region to Saxony.
