Frequent and abundant precipitation accompanying the mountainous areas surrounding the Sadeck Valley;
► fast surface runoff;
► concentric arrangement of rivers;
► low permeability of the substrate (J. Lach, 1997).
The highest water levels are observed after spring thaw and violent torrential downpours. Long-lasting snowflakes occur in the winter and are caused by the occurrence of solid precipitation and long snow cover.Appearing autumn and even summer calves show little retention of the Beskydy.
