Legionowo records 35.5 degrees Celsius – the highest temperature measurement so far this year, as reported by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management (IMGW). According to IMGW, the previous record was set just a month ago on July 15th.
Legionowo, Poland – The small town of Legionowo, located about 20 kilometers north of Warsaw in the Mazovia region, has recently made headlines for breaking this year’s record for the highest temperature in Poland. The temperature soared to an astonishing 35.5 degrees Celsius, marking a new peak for the year.
The announcement was made by the Institute of Meteorology and Water Management (IMGW), which closely monitors weather conditions and trends across the country. This new record surpasses the previous one, set only a month ago in Słubice, a town in the Lubusz Voivodeship, where the temperature had reached 35.4 degrees Celsius on July 15th.
Legionowo, nestled in the scenic Mazovian landscape, has now solidified its place in this year’s weather history. The town, known for its charming streets and proximity to the capital, Warsaw, has become the focal point of discussions about the ongoing heatwave.
While the 2023 record-breaking temperature in Legionowo is significant, it falls short of the record set in 2022. Last year, Słubice held the honor of registering the highest temperature ever recorded in Poland. On June 19th, 2022, the mercury climbed to a scorching 38.3 degrees Celsius. That record remains untouched, but this year’s heatwave has undoubtedly left an impact.
