Expats living in Poland will need to learn to cope with cold weather as the country is known for its bitterly cold winters with temperatures often plunging as low as 16°F (-9°C). Although the length of winter varies from year to year, with the season typically beginning in November and ending in March, it can be extended when eastern winds blow in from the Russian front. Snowfall is also common in winter, with snow sometimes falling even as late as April.
Spring usually lasts two months (April to May) and is characterised by rain and cold nights, with daily temperatures ranging between 41°F (5°C) and 59°F (15°C)
Although precipitation falls year round, it is heaviest in summer. The summer season (June to August) in Poland is moderate and average temperatures tend to hover between 68°F (20°C) and 77°F (25°C). Excessive heat is rare, but droughts can occur from time to time.
Autumn in Poland begins pleasantly and is marked by warm days, while the temperature begins dropping dramatically in the second half of the season.
