#July Snow In #Poland Took Everyone By Surprise!
Author: JAKUB ORZECHOWSKI / SE
Snow in July – this information surprised everyone. We remember the situations when it fell in April or even in May, but not during the holidays. June suggested that we could deal with a truly hot summer. In many cities in Poland, temperatures reached even 35 degrees Celsius, and the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management every year issued new warnings about the threat of heat. The situation changed by 180 degrees at the turn of June and July. For some time, we’ve been dealing mainly with cooling down. Nobody, however, expected that snow would fall in Poland.
July in the mountains is not pleasant for tourists. Those who decided to spend their holidays there are dealing with low temperatures, gusty winds and really poor visibility. What’s more, on the highest peaks of the Tatras lies fresh snow! According to the weather forecasters, the temperature on Kasprowy Wierch dropped below zero (-0.2 degrees). The Tatra Volunteer Ambulance Service warned everyone not to go to the mountains without proper equipment.
