An ever earlier spring – good or bad?

One of the mildest winters on record is having an impact on nature: As has often been the case in recent years, nature has woken up very early, which is also reflected in the fact that hay fever symptoms have been on the rise for some time now and many spring flowers are already blooming in gardens and parks. Winters are becoming milder and milder as a result of climate change, which means that nature is waking up earlier and earlier and the growing season is being extended. This has a variety of effects, both positive and negative.

AMOC – the heating of Europe

Global flow patterns exist not only in the atmosphere, but also in the oceans. These span the entire world and connect all the oceans with each other. In addition to winds and the Coriolis force, thermohaline circulation is the main driving force behind this. A new study on the possible overturning of the AMOC (Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation) means that it is now back in the headlines. But what exactly is this about?

Hatschi – Start of the pollen season

Later than last year, but now the pollen season has begun and with it the time of suffering for pollen allergy sufferers in the north too. Currently, there is already a moderate to high amount of hazel pollen and a low to moderate amount of alder pollen in the Swiss Plateau. The prevailing high-pressure weather in the coming days will favor the pollen count; only on Thursday will the pollen be washed out of the air with a disturbance and some precipitation in the north, but the pollen concentration will quickly rise again afterwards.

An upside-down pressure situation over Europe

There is currently a high pressure system over the northern Atlantic, which is blocking the westerly flow. As a result, the so-called NAO index is strongly negative, so that cold air has flowed into Central Europe. In the coming days, the NAO index will slowly rise again and the situation will gradually unblock again next week. It currently looks like a mild, repeatedly wet and partly windy south-westerly to westerly situation over the coming week, and the current (moderate) cold in the lowlands will then probably be a thing of the past again.

Stormy start to November with storm Ciarán in Western Europe

Tomorrow Wednesday, a big storm named Ciarán will form over the Atlantic under rapid strengthening, which will subsequently move over southern England to the North Sea during the night on Thursday and on Thursday, bringing gale-force winds of up to about 150 km/h in parts, especially in southern England and northern France, and here especially in Brittany. Associated with this are also in the western English Channel and on the west coast of France also high waves of over 10 meters in places.

World Meteorology Day and 150th anniversary of an international meteorological community

World Meteorological Day takes place every year on March 23. With the convention of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), which came into force in 1950, the cooperation of a wide range of nations should lead to more reliable weather forecasts. This year, World Meteorological Day takes place under the motto "the future of weather, climate and water over generations".
