I only heard this news over the radio and in a weather forecast in German television today. The reporter said that the Siberian wind is coming on the first day of February this year. The weather temperature will tremendously drop to sub-zero level. It is forecasted that in Germany the temperature will reach -20 degree Celsius (-4 ºF) during the night and -10 degree Celsius (14 ºF) during the day this coming Wednesday. This is probably the reason why I feel that the month of February is the coldest winter month I always experience in Germany.
Be sure to wear your thick winter jacket and be ready with your winter accessories like gloves, hat, scarf, etc. especially when going outside your home. Please also be careful in driving. Sometimes the roads and the highways can be very slippery especially early in the morning!
Keep warm folks because this will really be a very cold February winter month! Be safe too!
