PARIS (Reuters) - Winter cereal crops across continental Europe avoided frost damage during a freezing spell earlier this month and should be spared in the week ahead, the European Union's crop monitoring unit said on Monday.

Below-average temperatures were recorded in most of Europe in the first 10 days of December, with severe frosts in central Europe sending temperatures to as low as minus 18 degrees Celsius, the MARS unit said in a monthly report.

"No frost damage is simulated until now on the basis of our frost kill analysis," it said.
