European Temperatures May Be Poised to Rise, AccuWeather Says

February 02, 2012

Feb. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Temperatures in Europe, where a cold snap has killed more than 100 people, may start to rise tomorrow night as clouds and snow move northeast in Ukraine, said forecaster

Ukraine, Poland and surrounding countries face freezing weather tonight, and lows tomorrow morning will be near this morning’s “dangerously” cold levels, the forecaster said. Temperatures in Kiev reached minus 28 degrees Celsius (minus 18 degrees Fahrenheit) this morning, the lowest this century, said.

“Unseasonably chilly air will continue to flow throughout Europe next week, but will fail to produce a repeat of this week’s extreme temperatures,” AccuWeather said. Belarus and Poland will get relief from “brutal cold” over the weekend, according to the forecaster.
