Based on Kraków's measurement series of air temperature in the 20th century an attempt was made to analyse the winter season by means of some criteria which are important for the thermal conditions which-in turn-influence natural processes and phenomena. The first day with mean daily air temperature <0°C was taken to determine the beginning of a winter and the last such day for the end of winter. The characterization of winters was based on the number of winter days, frosty days, extreme frosty days and sums of frost. Special attention was paid to extreme winters because of their thermal conditions as well as their frequency and variability
