Hurricane risk increases on Tuesday
Thunderstorms on Tuesday are very dangerous. There is an increased danger of a tornado, because there can be supercells here, too. In addition, severe thunderstorms with speeds of up to 100 km/h are likely on Tuesday. Floods should also be expected as a result of heavy rains.
Thunderstorms subside – there is still a risk of flooding
The good news is that thunderstorm air is moving east. Already on Wednesday there will be almost no thunderstorms, and if there are, then at least there is no danger of a hurricane. No longer afraid of storms and hail. However, storm-like rain could still fall on Wednesday, which could be a problem especially in the west where there is a risk of flooding.
But the supercells won’t be back soon. The weather changes and it is finally more stable and summer in Germany. So two more days of severe thunderstorms, then calm now.
Everything points to a great flood event on the Rhine and its tributaries. Extremely heavy rain will cause flooding all over West Germany and our neighboring countries by the end of the week.
