Czech Republic sees extreme snow as another Arctic front descends on Europe

Wide swaths of the Czech Republic, including Labska Bouda, have been buried in extreme snowfall this late in the season. The unseasonal winter weather conditions were brought by a cold Arctic air mass descending on Europe and keeping much of the continent under below-average temperatures.

Extreme snowfall engulfed vast regions of the Czech Republic, including Labska Bouda in the Krkonose Mountains in mid-May.

Jaroslav Palivoda, a snowplow driver in the area for almost 40 years, said he has only experienced this level of accumulation on three occasions and never this late in the season.

Ales Hnizdo, operations director of Labska Bouda, pointed out that there has been "an extreme amount of snow" this year.

The rare Czech snowfall was due to a descending Arctic air mass on Europe, which was swept unusually far south by a weak meridional jet stream flow.
