DISCUSSION: As a strengthening low pressure system continue to traverse across sections of northwest to north-central Europe, the system moved into a region which was chiefly comprised of increasingly colder air. As a result of this system moving into an increasingly colder ambient environment, this allowed for widespread snowfall to blanket parts of several countries spread across the northern tier of Europe. Although it is most certainly Spring across many of these places, those locations positioned at higher elevations can often have a propensity to see substantial winter storms even into the earlier parts of the Springtime period. Hence, it is not entirely uncommon even at this time of year. However, as with any form of wintry weather, the fact of whether such winter storm impacts are openly welcomed by people living across these parts of northern Europe is another story all-together. Nonetheless, this latest northern European winter blast certainly had substantial travel impacts both on the ground as well as in the skies above these countries.
