We have a code red weather alarm in the Netherlands for blizzard conditions tomorrow.
That is very rare here so it could be quite disruptive!

Just across the North Sea from you we have an amber warning. Warnings start at 2400UTC today.

Already being called Beast from the East II.

I pulled up this map for a bigger picture. It looks like the Red alert is in the eastern part of the Netherlands. There are some Orange and Yellow alerts too. Some areas of France Germany are in Violet! That can't be good!

This map is just for the Netherlands. Hmm, high winds along the central to northern coast...

Where I'm at, we're due for some snow and a LOT of cold. We may see a high of 22 F (around -5 C) today, and then it gets colder.

Some snow overnight, and a bit more off and on early this coming week. Highs around 15 F (-10 C) or lower, and lows between around 5 and -5 F (around -15 to -20 C) through Friday.

I've already got cabinet doors ajar below my sinks so the pipes don't freeze.

Well, at least this cold spell should knock the bugs down a bit...

Dang! I meant Germany. I don't know why I typed "France."

I am living on the northern edge of the "violet zone". The weather forecast looks interesting but not catastrophical. Probably we'll get around 20 cm snow by tomorrow. The temperatures may drop to about -15 degree Celsius next week.


In the Harz mountains it will be a bit harder with more snow and wind gusts up to 100kmh.
But the biggest problem may be ice rain south of the "violet zone". Forecasts say up to 5 cm ice layers are possible. That could break many trees and power lines.

Perhaps one of you could put up a map with all the colored zones?

Disregard. Somebody above had one. Sorry!

The map seems to get updated regularly.


Edit: I didn't update before posting, sorry.

Glaze ice is very bad. The worst ice storm I remember hearing about was the January 1998 storm in the northeastern US and Canada. The National Weather Service has a 10-year anniversary page here.

I've experienced a few ice storms, but much smaller accumulations - maybe a quarter-inch (around 6 cm mm). That's more than enough to turn "rush hour" into a demolition derby, and turn walking into skating or falling.

Ahh, clicked on the wide-view near the violet, and got the larger scale map of Germany. The "black ice" warning is in the yellow zone E and W of Frankfurt. Squiggles and exclamation points.

I experienced the 98 Ice Storm; the photo gallery at the end of that link gives a good visual sense of the tree damage. A lot of the ice accumulation happened overnight and I recall a period where it was impossible to sleep due to the incredible sounds of large branches in the nearby woods snapping under the weight and then showering their surroundings with ice and branches.
