The last few days have brought a significant cooling down. As Tomasz Wasilewski, presenter of tvnmeteo.pl, explained on TVN24, in the next few days winter will let go at least for a while. However, we should not expect a “spectacular burst of spring”.
Wednesday morning brought us a frosty aura. In many central regions of the country, the temperature dropped to -8/-7 degrees Celsius, and in Tatra Mountainson Kasprowy Wierch, amounted to only -17 degrees C. As Tomasz Wasilewski, presenter of tvnmeteo.pl, explained in the program “You get up and know”, at the moment Poland is one of the coldest countries in the center of the continent.
“It’s colder in the north, here the temperature has dropped to -25 degrees, but that’s not surprising,” he explained, pointing to the map. – It’s -8/-7 here, colder than our eastern neighbours, colder than our southern and western neighbors. We have such an oasis of cold here.
Clear but frosty
Why did it get so cold in Poland in the morning, while in France and Great Britain the temperature reaches 10 degrees C? Two factors are responsible for this: the frosty air that came to us over the weekend and a clear night.
– We owe this and the previous clear night to a vast high-pressure area that stretches from Italy to Central Europe. That’s why here, where there is cold air during clear nights, it became frosty – said Wasilewski.
In the west of Europe, the power in the weather is exercised by the low from the Atlantic, which is located above the Atlantic and travels towards Great Britain. The presenter explained that this arrangement, together with the atmospheric fronts accompanying it, brings about a change in the weather in this part of Europe, i.e. warming.
– It is here, behind the warm front (…), that warmer air from the Atlantic flows into Western Europe – he added.
Is there a chance for heat?
The warming brought by the low pressure applies not only to the western parts of Europe. Everything indicates that in the next few days masses of warm air will also reach Poland. Today, a warm atmospheric front will reach the western borders of our country, preceding the “right heat”, bringing cloudiness with it.
“These clouds will be associated with a warm front, followed by warmer air,” Wasilewski explained. This means that the temperature will be higher in the coming days and nights. There is nothing to count on a spectacular outbreak of spring, but there is a good chance that there will be no such frosty nights (…) and during the day the temperature will also rise significantly. We’re getting warm.
Wasilewski added that the following days will be warmer, and in some places the temperature will reach 15-16 degrees Celsius. Next week, just before Christmas, “something winter” will happen.
– Of course, “something winter” as for the possibilities of April, but as it happens at this time of year (…) there are a lot of fluctuations and fluctuations in the weather. And so it will be this time, he added.
