DISCUSSION: Over past few days, several clusters of stronger storms erupted across parts of northwest Europe. As this unfolded, a particularly intense mesoscale convective system (MCS) erupted within a portion of this convection which allowed particularly strong winds to reach the ground. This happens as a result of downdrafts strengthening within a deep convective storm helping to drag down stronger winds towards the ground and often with very destructive consequences. As captured in the footage above, Tomek Seki reported particularly impressive storm footage from Chojnice, Poland. It goes without saying, that this part of Poland was very badly affected by the large MCS which had embedded supercells within in during the day yesterday. Moreover, in addition to the raw footage attached above, a plethora of damage was reported from many different parts of Poland during the course of the day yesterday. This and other severe weather events which have recently unfolded across western and northwestern Europe help to reinforce the importance of being weather-ready at all times so you are ready before severe weather strikes.
