Split flow pattern continues over Europe. One branch detours northeast over UK towards Finland. Another one branches off to the southeast and grazes the N-African coast. Steering cold-core vortex over the southern Artic Ocean/N-Norwegian Sea remains in place and pushes numerous low-amplitude waves east. With those waves, many parts of Europe will see some kind of impact. Regarding dynamics, the northern ones feature best structure with distinct stamps (complex pattern of various low pressure areas of weak waves) in the lower troposphere, whereas waves to the south start to weaken with only diffuse signals in the surface pressure fields (e.g. W-Mediterranean).
