Scientists state that Europe has only seen it is the hottest winter since records started. By the beginning of December to the end of February, the average temperature has been an outstanding 3.4 degrees Celsius over the standard from 1981-2010 and 1.4 levels higher than the previous record set in 2015-16.
“In comparison to past winters, this was remarkably hot,” says Carlo Buontempo. Manager of Copernicus. “We see that this version from year to year, particularly in the tropics, but that stands out like a very impressive and incredibly hot, gentle winter for Europe.”
Rise is not only because of global warming
It states seasonal temperatures tend to be subject to significant fluctuations year-on-year.
“1924-25 was likewise hot, using two or three levels over the climate at that moment. That means you may have a few degrees variation over the baseline and you may expect to have any of the every 50-100 decades. They’re odd but they are a part of their natural variability,” states Buontempo.
The unseasonal warmth has resulted in the collapse of this ice-wine crop in Germany as well as the odd spectacle of snow needing to be helicoptered to a ski resort in France.
“I visit climate with an impact on nearly all of our actions but when you find these large anomalies you then truly know firsthand what this implies. The ice wine period in Germany, the unbelievably warm winter in Russia and Finland and several parts of Northern Europe, the effect on Reindeer herding such as due to the warm temperatures,” states Buontempo.
