The resqme team supports all those experiencing difficult weather. Dominik Jung, a German meteorologist, explains that next winter will be abnormally cold, and so does American Joe Bastardi, who works for weather giant AccuWeather, and who explains that “it’s going to be very cold.” These forecasts are based on the calculation of climate indices showing that Arctic air masses will move to Europe. The abnormal cold is also determined by the Arctic oscillation–one of the main factors of influence on winter weather in the northern hemisphere.
