Weather for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. The forecast for the coming days shows cooling and negative temperatures, and the beginning of January will also bring snowfall. In some regions, it may even be a dozen or so centimeters thick.
During the next night, Poland will still remain within the range of the continent that is moving deeper than Bodo. Clouds that developed on Saturday during the day in the cool and moist polar air mass flowing from the north, giving light rain showers, will gradually disappear. On Sunday, the country will be covered by a high-pressure wedge, which will again direct warm air masses from southwestern Europe to us – informs tvnmeteo.pl forecaster Daniel Kowalczyk.
Weather for New Year’s Eve
The last day of the year will be cloudy with clear showers and clear showers, mainly in the south of the country. Light rainfall, less than a liter per square meter, is possible in northern regions. Thermometers will show from 3 degrees Celsius in Podlasie to 8 degrees C in Małopolska. The wind will be south-easterly, light and moderate.
During New Year’s Eve, as the weather forecaster announces, “Poland from the west will be under the influence of the great Costa low-pressure vortex from the British Isles, and a cold front precipitation zone will enter the country.” There will be moderate to heavy cloud cover. There will be light rainfall of 1-5 l/sq m, initially covering the western part of the country, and later also the center and south. The minimum temperature will range from -1 degrees C in the Suwałki region to 5 degrees C in Lesser Poland and Podkarpacie. There will be a weak and moderate wind, southeasterly, turning west.
Weather for the New Year
New Year’s Day, i.e. Monday, promises to be cloudy with some showers. There should be no rain in the southwestern part of the country, but in other regions there will be occasional rainfall, and in Masuria and Podlasie also rain and snow. The thermometers will show from 1 degree C in the Suwałki region to 8 degrees C in Lower Silesia. There will be a light to moderate south-westerly wind from the southwest.
Frost and snow on the horizon
As the forecaster announces, “at the beginning of January, most of the country will remain under the influence of low pressure centers. More fronts with rainfall will move over Poland, in the air flowing from the Atlantic Ocean.” They are expected to reach the north-eastern regions, over which cold air from the depths of the continent will lie, which is why they may turn into sleet and snow. – At the junction of these air masses – in places from Warmia, through Masuria and Podlasie, to the Lublin region – up to several centimeters of snow may fall in the second half of next week – adds Kowalczyk.
Tuesday will be cloudy with slight showers. There will be rainfall of up to 5 l/sq m, in the north of the country there will also be sleet, and in the Suwałki region up to 5 centimeters of snow will fall. The maximum temperature will reach from -1 degrees C in the north-east of the country to 6 degrees C in Lower Silesia. The wind will blow with weak to moderate strength, from changing directions.
Wednesday will bring cloudy weather with rainfall and sleet totaling 5-10 l/sq m, and locally up to 15 l/sq m. Between 5 and 15 cm of snow will fall in north-eastern and eastern Poland. Thermometers will indicate from -1 degrees C in the Suwałki region to 9 degrees C in Lower Silesia. The wind will be moderate and quite strong, gusting to 40-70 kilometers per hour. In the eastern half of the country, the wind will blow from the south-east, and otherwise it will blow from the west.
On Thursday, most of Poland will be cloudy with rainfall and sleet up to 1-5 l/sq m. Up to 1-3 cm of snow will fall in Masuria, Podlasie and the Lublin region. The temperature will range from -5 degrees C in Podlasie to 6 degrees C in Lower Silesia. The eastern wind in the north and east of the country will be weak, in the rest of the country it will blow moderately to quite strongly, gusting up to 60 km/h.
