Europe is experiencing the second warmest winter since records began in 1979. Not only that, some regions of the continent were also much drier than average.

The EU service Copernicus announced on Wednesday that temperatures were well above average in Eastern Europe and parts of Northeastern Europe. According to Copernicus, February was the fifth warmest worldwide. “Most of Europe had above-average air temperatures, especially northern Norway and Sweden and the Svalbard (Spitsbergen) region,” the EU service said. In addition, it was drier than average in large parts of western and southeastern Europe and in regions of Russia . Temperatures on the Iberian Peninsula were below average. Germany: Twelfth warm winter in a row The German Weather Service (DWD) had already announced that Germany had experienced the twelfth warm winter in a row. The average temperature in winter 2022/23 was 2.9 degrees. According to this, it was 1.5 degrees more than in the comparison period from 1991 to 2020. Weather experts are guided by the meteorological winter, which lasts from December 1st to February 28th. For statistical reasons, too, the researchers calculate their data in whole months.
