Weather conditions in the Tatra mountains are now hard for tourists planning their weekend trip to Zakopane. Although the snowfall stopped, some city districts are covered with trace amounts of ice and snow. The well known tourist destination - Kasprowy Wierch, is covered with a 33 cm layer of snow. The temperature at the top of the mountain dropped to -5 Celsius. Snow persists 1500 meters above sea level.
