The weather will change dramatically. Everyone will feel cold on Wednesday, and residents of the southern regions will also expect heavy rain. It will fall so much that it can flood. – It looks very dangerous on weather maps – tvnmeteo.pl presenter Tomasz Wasilewski said on TVN24.
Poland is under the influence of low pressure systems over southern Scandinavia and northern Italy. The associated atmospheric front will bring successive waves of heavy rain in the south of our country every several hours, according to tvnmeteo.pl Arleta Unton-Pyziołek. In 48 hours the total precipitation can reach about 100 liters per square metre, especially in the mountains, which is half the amount of rain that usually falls throughout July.
– Mountain rivers and streams react very quickly to such rains, that is, they can suddenly swell and cause local floods. In addition to the fact that it will be heavy and continuous rain (…) with breaks lasting more than a day, there will also be storm clouds embedded in this rain area. (…]Then there is the risk of periodic flooding or localized flooding – warned Thomas Wasilewski on TVN24. “It looks very scary on the weather maps,” he said.
Summer will stop for a day.
The tvnmeteo.pl presenter also added, “It seems that the first wave of rain is still moderate, and it will be worse at night and the third wave will be tomorrow afternoon.” – Until tomorrow (Wednesday – ed.) And until the evening, the situation in the south can sometimes be very dangerous due to heavy rains, – he noted.
In addition to heavy rains, cold air will flow into Poland. It will be much cooler than the last few days. – Summer will slow us down for a day – Wasilewski summed up.
