The next few days will bring us a real struggle with the weather. During the weekend, the Polish weather will be dominated by the Patrick low pressure vortex, bringing with it cold air, rain and even snow in some places. After it, however, we will find ourselves under the rule of a vast high pressure, which will remind us of the Polish golden autumn – for how long?
As tvnmeteo.pl forecaster Arleta Unton-Pyziołek reported, Poland is within the reach of a deep, windy Patrick low-pressure vortex with the center moving from southern Norway towards north-western Russia. From the north, a cold front with rainfall enters our country, pushed by air masses of Arctic origin, which slowly push warm polar air masses over the country. This zone is expected to move into the interior of the country, but it will not have time to reach Podkarpacie and Małopolska by Friday evening. Only on the night from Saturday to Sunday will the front rest on the Sudetes and the Carpathians, and on Sunday it will move further to the Balkans. On the second day of the weekend, cold air will cover all of Poland. It will be bitterly cold, and snow may fall in the mountains.
Weather for the weekend
Saturday promises to be cloudy with showers in the southern part of Poland. From the north, a rainfall zone of up to 5-10 liters of rain per square meter will move into the country. Only in the southern parts the day is generally expected to be without precipitation. Thermometers will show from 15 degrees Celsius in the Suwałki region, through 17 degrees C in the central regions to 19 degrees C in Lower Silesia and Lesser Poland. A moderate and quite strong wind will blow from the west, gusting to 50-70 kilometers per hour, and in the north-east and east up to 90 km/h.
On Sunday we will have slightly and moderately cloudy weather. In the north-east and south-east, light rainfall of up to 5 l/sq m is expected, and in the Carpathians – wet snow of up to 5 centimeters. The maximum temperature will range from 9 degrees C in Podlasie, through 12 degrees C in the center of the country to 14 degrees C in Lower Silesia. The north-west wind will be moderate and quite strong, with gusts reaching up to 50-70 km/h.
Weather for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday
On Monday, a powerful high-pressure embankment is expected to expand, reaching from France to the Black Sea. It will also cover our country, moving the cold low to the north. Poland will still remain in cold air, but a warmer mass will begin to push in from the west, pushing a warm front with rainfall into our region. Thanks to it, on Tuesday the temperature in the west of the country will exceed 15 degrees Celsius, and on Wednesday and Thursday in the west, south and center it may rise to 23-25 degrees Celsius. Golden autumn will return for a while, but later another vast bay of cold will develop over us. , even frost will be possible.
Mostly cloudy with some showers are forecast on Monday. In the north-east of the country there will be light rainfall up to 5 l/sq m. The thermometers will show from 10 degrees C in the east, through 11 degrees C in central Poland to 13 degrees C in Lower Silesia. The wind will blow from the west and north-west, moderate and quite strong, with gusts reaching speeds of up to 50 km/h.
Tuesday will bring us cloudy skies that will clear up throughout the day. In the north, east and south-east of the country it may rain up to 5-10 l/sq m. Thermometers will show from 11 degrees C in the Suwałki region, through 15 degrees C in the center to 17 degrees C in Lower Silesia. The wind from the southwest will be moderate and quite strong, gusting to 50-60 km/h.
Wednesday will be mostly cloudy, but with more sunshine. Light rainfall of up to 3 l/sq m is expected in Podlasie. The temperature during the day will range from a maximum of 14 degrees C in the Suwałki region, through 20 degrees C in central Poland, to 24 degrees in Lower Silesia.
