Quite impressive look over the maps and satellites the last two days. Sunny an unusually warm last decade of September continues over large part of Europe as the strong ridge persists. It transformed into a classic omega-block like pattern centered over CNTRL Europe while troughs are located on its left and right edges.
A quick look over the VIS satellite shows an extensive areas of almost no cloudiness over the continent. Surely a remarkable and quite rare event to see such a big area so clear and especially in early autumn, as such pattern would be more likely to occur in summer or mid winter months.
The next couple of days will bring slightly warmer temps into Alpine region when we still expect extremely warm to locally even hot temperatures in the Sat-Mon period.
This pattern will persist for another 5-6 days when it finally collapses with a changing pattern across Europe. Its becoming likely that deep trough from the polar low will expand southwards towards the Alps and bring the summer-killer cold front and end up the summer period completely. This upcoming event will surely be closely monitored, so stay tuned.
