He reminded that when going to the mountains “you have to check first weather forecast“.
In the morning, in the valleys of Bieszczady, among others in Cisna and Ustrzyki Górne, thermometers showed 13-15 degrees Celsius. It is cloudy everywhere.
We expect rainfall in most of the country on Saturday, and storms in the Bieszczady Mountains and Roztocze. They are valid in the Bieszczady Mountains warnings of the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management against heavy rain with thunderstorms.
“Let’s not protect ourselves under single trees and try not to stay on the ridges”
Dębicki recalled that “during storms, you should avoid open spaces”. “Also, let’s not protect ourselves under single trees and try not to stay on the ridges,” he explained. He added that on mountain trips “you have to take with you, among other things, high-calorie food, drinks, a raincoat and appropriate footwear and clothing”.
