Ordinarily, snow falling on Warsaw in the middle of January would not be worthy of note. But over the 22 years I’ve been living here, I’ve noticed the winters become much milder. The last significant snowfall was in 2012/13, when it kept snowing right up to Easter in April. The last really cold winter was 2005/06, when the mercury dropped to a slightly fresh -27. Tonight it is -16 but what makes this cold snap strange is that it only began last Wednesday with the first snowfall, and is projected to end by Tuesday morning, when the temperature will return to above zero for a few days at least. So, while it’s here, here is the snow in my back garden, staying light and fluffy as snow only really does when the temperature is below -10.
Stay safe and warm!
