The weekend during which winter holidays begin in four voivodeships will bring snowfall. As the tvnmeteo.pl presenter Tomasz Wasilewski said in “You get up and you know”, “they will not be very intense”, but the white cover will gradually increase, also in the mountains. Frost is expected, but not as severe as in recent days.
According to data from Thursday morning provided by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management, the most snow, 138 centimeters, lies on Śnieżka. On Kasprowy Wierch there is 79 cm, which is much less. In lowland areas, the snow cover in most places reaches several cm, and only in a few places, including the north-east and south-east of the country, it is slightly over 10 cm. As Tomasz Wasilewski admitted on TVN24, “there is not much snow in the mountains” and “it is not an impressive snow cover like for this time of year.”
On Saturday, students from four voivodeships will begin a two-week break from classes at schools. What weather will the winter holidays start with and is there a snowy winter in the forecast?
As Wasilewski said, “there is a chance that there will be more snow in the coming days.” He added that already on Friday “it rains in many places in the east“And there will be more snow this weekend, also in the mountains.”
A weekend with snow
Precipitation will appear due to two low pressure systems over the northern part of the continent. – All the lows that are over the North Atlantic and Scandinavia are moving from north to south and southeast – explained the presenter. – The one that is now located in Estonia and Latvia will come to eastern Poland today – he said.
The next low, which is located over northern Norway – as Wasilewski announced – “is getting ready for Saturday and Sunday.” – The low is running after the low. They move from the north to the south and bring with them humid, cloudy and not excessively cold weather, he said. – So please expect snowfall on Saturday and Sunday. They will not be very intense, but the snow will gradually, slowly increase, he added.
There won’t be much frost
After days of bitter frost, during which the temperature at night and in the morning in some parts of the country dropped to around -20 degrees Celsius, warmer air began to flow to Poland.
What awaits us next? A graph showing the forecast temperature for Warsaw for the next week and a half shows that it is expected to remain generally below freezing. As the presenter explained, “the temperature will rarely be above zero”, but “big frost” should not be expected. On Friday morning, -8 degrees Celsius was recorded in the capital, and in the following days it is expected to drop to a maximum of around -6 degrees Celsius.
– It looks like most of these days until January 24 will be winter weather. Not a harsh winter, but still a winter, with negative temperatures and sometimes snowfall – summed up Wasilewski on TVN24.
