While cold air has already prevailed in northern Germany, stabilizing air masses, the south continues to contain warm, moist air. After heavy thunderstorms at times Monday evening, strong thunderstorms are expected again on Tuesday. Violent storms could also occur in the next few days. Because the low pressure channel remains over southern Germany.
Thunderstorms will reappear in the southwest of the country from Tuesday noon and will extend east during the day. In southeastern Germany, where most of the energy is in the air for lightning and thunder, this is where it can be most powerful.
Supercells are possible: Organized thunderstorms are likely to recur
In addition to individual thunderstorms, the shortwave trough, a distortion of the high-altitude current, causes powerful thunderstorms along the line. This thunderstorm line moves from the southwest in the northeast direction. It reaches the Rhineland-Palatinate, southern Hesse, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria.
Especially in the Alps and in the foothills of the Alps, thunderstorms will be very strong due to high-energy air masses. Supercells, torrential hail, heavy rain and storms are possible again.
Thunderstorms likely on Wednesday as well
Thunderstorms on Tuesday can continue into the night and on Wednesday there is lightning and thunder again in the south of the country. However, the risk of thunderstorms is reduced, because colder air masses from the north advance south and there is less energy in the air mass of thunderstorms.
However, there are still thunderstorms and hailstones in southeast Germany. However, the intensity of the previous days should not be achieved anymore.
New storms in the northeast of the country Thursday
On Thursday the low pressure groove melts and retreats to the northeast. There may be another thunderstorm in a larger area. Thunderstorms are likely from the Alps to North Rhine-Westphalia and Brandenburg. Air stratification does not allow such strong thunderstorms as at the beginning of the week. Most of the time, heavy rain will be a side effect of a thunderstorm.
Rain protection on the go
Robes, suits, jackets and pants for protection from rain
Thunderstorms are also likely in the following days. A spreading thunderstorm ends with the dissolution of the low pressure channel.
