Very cold night across much of Europe with an anticyclone of over 1050 hPa across Norway. I notice that overnight temperatures fell to a minimum of -32.5°C (-26.5°F) at Drevsjo in central Norway (WMO 01393) (fig 2).
Unsurprisingly, it was also where the highest MSLP pressure was to be found (fig 3). It would be interesting to see the adjustment tables they use to calculate a QNH pressure from the station QFE for a station that’s already 674 M above sea level.
Meanwhile back in good old blighty, Dunkeswell in Devon did rather well to get down to -5.0°C overnight (fig 3), to make it the fourth coldest low-level station in WMO block #03 (fig 4).
Apologies for the weird title of this blog – it just came to me after listening to American Pie on Spotify!
