    The Institute of Meteorology and Water Management (IMGW) has issued warnings for strong winds and storms sweeping across eastern Poland today. With wind speeds reaching up to 85 km/h, residents are urged to take caution.

    Strong Winds Along the Coast
    In coastal regions, the strong winds are already making their presence felt, with gusts reaching speeds of up to 75 km/h in some areas. Along the Baltic Sea, wind speeds have surpassed this mark, posing potential risks to maritime activities.

    Storms Approaching from the Northeast
    Storms are making their way into Poland from the northeast, prompting warnings in several provinces including Warmian-Masurian, Podlaskie, Masovian, and parts of Kuyavian-Pomeranian, Greater Poland, and Łódź Voivodeships. The forecast indicates that these storms will intensify throughout the day.

    Potential Impact
    As the storms progress, wind speeds could escalate to 85 km/h, accompanied by the threat of hail. Areas expected to be affected include Lublin, Subcarpathian, Świętokrzyskie, Lesser Poland, and northern parts of Silesian Voivodeship.

    Residents are advised to stay indoors and secure loose objects. Travelers should exercise caution, and maritime activities along the coast should be avoided until conditions improve.
