Vintage Watch IV

Keeping an eye on weather around the globe.


Patra, Greece

Mainland Greece is in the grips of a heatwave this week with forecasted highs of 99 degree for half the days of the coming week. Hopefully the vineyards of the region don't quite reach those highs, because otherwise the weather looks beautiful.

Last Week's Forecast

Speyer, Germany

The unsettled weather in Germany is coming to end this week. A pair of rainy days early in the week are followed by a gorgeous stretch that should help dry out the vineyards a bit.

Nantes, France

The weather in the western Loire valley looks to be very typical this week, moderatly warm and with a strong Atlantic influence; it's a bit of an improvement over last week.

Last Week's Forecast

Charlottesville, Virginia

They sure have had plenty of moisture in Virginia this year as well, and there's more in the forecast though with moderating temperatures the coming week looks to be an improvement over the past few.

Last Week's Forecast

Wolkersdorf, Austria

The weather in Austria looks downright oppressive this week with highs over 100 or higher for the last four days of the week. The 109 degree forecast for Saturday is in fact the highest number I've seen this week. That is just too hot for man or grape.

Last Week's Forecast

Lavis, Trentino Italy

Trentino is finally seeing a week of good weather, though bracketed by some rains and including a sweltering forecasted high of 106 for Saturday. It has been, and continues to be a crazy year of weather in the region.
