Nothing happens twice? Not true. We had a similar pre-premiere speech last fall. On November 19, 2022, there was 8 cm of snow on the coast in Hel and 6 cm in Łeba; Due to the sea effect, Świnoujście was covered with 14 cm of snow on November 20. On November 24, it became winter in Masovia. Now – again – we have a week of crazy weather ahead of us.
Yesterday, in some places, the temperature exceeded 10, even 11 degrees, but today it will be cold in the north-east – -1 degrees Celsius in Warsaw, -4 degrees Celsius in Suwałki, and 0 and -2 degrees Celsius during the day, respectively.
On Tuesday, during the day, the temperature is expected to rise slightly above what forecasters predicted for the night. In Łódź, for example, 4 degrees was forecast on the night from Monday to Tuesday, and today during the day – 5. Today there should be some clearing in the north, a lot of clouds, sleet in the center, rain in the south.
The frostiest night – from Tuesday to Wednesday
On Wednesday we will fall under the influence of a high-pressure wedge. We know what that means. More sun and lower temperatures. The night from Tuesday to Wednesday will be frosty, it looks like it will be the coldest night this week (though not the only one with temperatures below zero). In Suwałki -8 degrees, in Gdańsk, Poznań and Łódź -4 degrees, in Warsaw -5 degrees.
On Wednesday, November 22, light frost will persist in approximately half of the country, the south and Greater Poland have a chance of zero, only in Pomerania and the western border 1 to 3 degrees Celsius. The night from Wednesday to Thursday will also be frosty, although it will ease a bit. It’s still -5 degrees in Warsaw, the same in Lublin and Białystok, -2 in Łódź and Kraków, the coldest in Zakopane, -6.
After two warmer days, colder again
On Thursday (apart from Podhale) – from 5 to 11 degrees, the north-western part of the country should be significantly warmer. On Friday, when you look at the temperature, the night is not much different from the day. But on the night from Friday to Saturday, another change is visible.
A cold and very snowy weekend is coming
On the night from Friday to Saturday, it will be slightly below zero in many places. On Saturday, the temperature will generally drop to 2 or a maximum of 3 degrees during the day. Frosty night from Saturday to Sunday – -9 in Podhale, and on Sunday during the day – zero degrees, a degree above or below zero. If on Thursday and Friday there are still sleet on the forecast maps, then on Saturday it will be mostly snow, and on Sunday, forecasters predict only snow. This is also a change – the weekend has cooled down in the forecast. And if the forecast doesn’t change, it’s going to be snowy.
Let’s get ready for anything
In the second half of the week, on Thursday-Friday, there may be strong winds, up to 100 km/h on the coast. Strong wind warnings are likely to be issued and gusts will lower temperatures. The weather hazard forecast includes icing, heavy snowfall, strong wind and freezing precipitation. There will be temperature differences and variable weather.
– Madness. Let’s get ready for anything. Large daily amplitudes when the front passes through and the inflow of both colder and warmer air – comments Emilia Szewczak, hydrologist from IMWM.
You need to follow the forecast and dress appropriately for the conditions. Colds are nasty, but overheating can be worse than the cold.
– At the moment, November is still warm, 1.6 above the norm, but yesterday the anomaly was negative (temperature deviation lower than the average – editor), and in the following days it may be positive. Yesterday’s general anomaly: -2.2. In the north of Masovia it was -4.4 below normal, and at that time in the west +2.1, because warmer air flowed there – Emilia Szewczak enumerates in an interview with Fakt.
There will be some weather changes ahead of us, but overall it will be more wintery.
– It’s winter in the east, pre-winter in the west – this is how Grzegorz Walijewski, forecaster and spokesman for IMWM-PIB, describes this week’s weather.
The devil is in the details, so take a look at the maps – the latest forecast from IMWM, from Tuesday to Sunday, in the gallery below.
