LONDON, March 20 (Reuters) - Northern mainland Europe and Scandinavia will experience colder than normal temperatures overall between April and June, The Weather Company said on Tuesday, with a cold start to spring set to linger into next month.
Southern Europe will see above average temperatures, it added.
“The second spell of unusual cold weather is ongoing, driven by an extended period of blocking,” said Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist with The Weather Company.
“As we head into April, most of our statistical/dynamical guidance suggests we will get at least one more big cold spell before the blocking pattern fades, with warmer and wetter weather confined to parts of southern Europe.”
