Abstract

The main purpose of the article is the analysis of the relations between thermic weather types in Hel and types of circulation from Osuchowska-Klein’s classification (1978). Thermic types have been constructed on the basis of A. Woś’s classification of weather types (1993). As a result, in the study eleven thermic types have been distinguished and grouped into three categories of weather: warm, transitory and frosty. Detailed analysis has revealed that the frequency of thermic weather types in particular types of circulation is determined by the character of circulation (cyclonic/anticyclonic) as well as by its direction. The most numerous types of circulation over Poland: E (north-eastern anticyclonic) and CB (north-western cyclonic) most often are accompanied by warm and transitory weather. In Hel the warm weather group is conditioned mainly by the circulation types associated with the advection of the air from the West or South; transitory and frosty groups are related to the types of circulation conditioning the airflow from the northern or eastern sector.
