In the coming days, we will have a real hit of winter. According to weather forecast tvnmeteo.pl Damian Zdonek, over the weekend we can expect snowfall, sometimes intense. In addition, blizzards, fog and – consequently – very difficult road conditions are announced. How long will the winter attack last?
In the coming days, Poland will be under the influence of the secondary Khang low, which, together with the system of active atmospheric fronts, will move from Podkarpacie into the country, the weather forecaster told tvnmeteo.pl Damian Zdonek. This system, powered by very humid, warm air from the Black Sea, will bring moderate to heavy, continuous snow and wet snowfall almost throughout the country. The forecast sum of precipitation will be from 5-10 centimeters in the west and north to 10-15 cm in other regions of Poland, with places in the center and in the south as much as 20 cm of snow may fall. Road conditions will be extremely difficult, and the situation will be made difficult by strong, gusty winds, causing snow blowing and lowering the perceived temperature. During snowstorms, visibility on the roads will be almost zero, the forecaster warns.
At the same time, a strong high will develop over Russia, the wedge of which will reach Western Europe next week, including Poland. Because of it, with the influx of warmer air from southern Europe, the beginning of next week promises to be cloudy, foggy in places, locally with weak mixed precipitation, Zdonek added.
