Last night and the morning hours on Wednesday were frosty throughout Poland, and the ground temperature dropped to as much as -11 degrees Celsius. As it turns out, the last time it was this cold on the morning of November 22 was almost two decades ago – reported the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management.
Recent years have accustomed us to relatively warm and rather rainy than snowy weather in November. This year, for several days now, winter has been coming more and more boldly to other regions of Poland. The night from Tuesday to Wednesday and the morning on Wednesday were exceptionally frosty compared to the previous 30 years.
Minimum temperature, i.e. measured at a height of two meters, between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. everywhere, except Hel (equal to 0 degrees Celsius), dropped to negative values. It was the coldest in the north-east of the country, and in Ostrołęka -8.5 degrees C was recorded. The lowest temperature at the ground, amounting to -11 degrees C, was recorded in Białystok.
According to these data, the last such cold morning on November 22 took place in 2004 – the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management reported on social media. “Some people may not remember that in November (…) frost can be severe and the landscapes may already be white” – concluded IMWM.
The coldest morning on this November day was in 1998. Then in Podlasie and Kujawy the temperature dropped to -20 degrees Celsius.
