Northern Europe temperatures seen below normal Dec-Feb-The Weather Company

LONDON, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Most of northern Europe will experience below-normal temperatures from December to February, while there will be warmer, wetter and windier conditions in the south, The Weather Company said on Monday.

"November has been another in a long string of warmer-than-normal months across much of Europe, although the last 10 days of the month should be considerably colder, especially across northeastern Europe as cold, continental, easterly flow will set up," said Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist with The Weather Company.

"The pattern change that is driving this colder weather is a bit of foreshadowing for the winter as a whole, as there are indications that this sort of high-latitude blocking may be more of a player this year, for the first time in many winters," he added.

The Weather Company, owned by IBM, provides weather forecasts aimed at the commodities and energy sectors.
