DISCUSSION: As a weak low pressure system recently made its way across sections of western Europe, many parts of Poland and surrounding countries saw a sizeable dose of winter weather. As shown in the very brief summary video above (courtesy of the Meteo Europe Facebook team), there were fairly dangerous travel conditions in place as a result of this winter storm moving through parts of western Europe due to the whiteout conditions which were being experienced by many people on the ground. It is worth noting that the other problematic factor associated with this particular winter blast was that the air temperatures in many places hovered in the lower to middle 20's; making for very cold conditions as well as a formidable wind chill factor at the height of this snowstorm. As always, if you are able to avoid traveling during or just on the heels of any formidable winter storm, it is always best to hunker down and wait for sanitation crew to get a good portion of the storm clean-up process underway!
