The weather in Poland is not the calmest. It has been blowing at high speed for many hours – at night, gusts exceeding 150 kilometers per hour were recorded on Kasprowy Wierch. According to tvnmeteo.pl forecaster Arleta Unton-Pyziołek, the windy and rainy weather will stay with us for now.
The last day brought us very strong wind gusts. According to meteorologists from the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – National Research Institute, the strongest maximum wind gust recorded from 1 to 1 p.m. 7 on Friday, was 151 kilometers per hour. The wind blew at such speed on Kasprowy Wierch. In the south of the province Lesser Poland, gusts reached up to 79 km/h. In turn, in Lower Silesia, the strongest recorded gust reached 58 km/h. In most of the country, gusts reached speeds of 30-50 km/h. Similar values were maintained in the morning. They are valid in several regions RCB alerts against strong gusts of wind.
Strong wind is a consequence of the current barometric situation in Europe. As tvnmeteo.pl forecaster Arleta Unton-Pyziołek reported on Friday morning, almost the entire continent is under the influence of a multi-center cyclone, the main center of which – the Ciaran low-pressure vortex – is located over the North Sea. The system is so large that two smaller low-pressure gyres have formed on its outskirts – Gordian with its center over Austria and Fred with its center over the North Atlantic.
In addition to gusts of wind, rain will also be harmful to us. On Friday morning, it was cloudy with quite heavy rainfall in Pomerania, Kujawy, Greater Poland, Lower Silesia, Opole and Mazovia. It continues to fall apart during the day – so much so that the Institute of Meteorology issued warnings for these regions.
