Todays weather forecast starts with really good news: Central Europe will fall under the influence of the Azores High today! However, this process will take a bit of time as it is a very large area of high pressure we are dealing with here. The weather will therefore be quite pleasant, but we should not expect a particularly warm day.
The new area of high pressure is building directly over the Alps and will not move anywhere for quite a long time.
