Azores High and Iceland Low - Europe under Pressure
Azorenhoch und Islandtief
Late June in the Alps: A storm is coming up. Within minutes, the temperature drops below zero degrees Celsius, snowfall endangers both animals and humans on their way up to the mountains. What's behind such a dramatic change of weather within such short time? Will there be more of these phenomenons?
The starting point of it all is - literally - somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean, where the Azores High meets the Iceland Low. Meteorologist Andreas Jäger sets out on a three-day trip to document the roots and consequences of the phenomenon: Starting at the Azores, he continues through the Rhone valley, the Gulf of Genoa while finishing his explorations in the heart of the Alps.
