In the south of the Federal Republic of Germany, a number of regions are also colored red. A level 3 storm warning also applies from Rhineland-Palatinate via Baden-Württemberg to Bavaria.

Severe weather map turns alarmingly red – warning of extreme conditions in parts of Germany
First report from June 29th, 3 p.m .: Munich – The risk of storms in Germany is not decreasing. In the night from Monday (June 28th) to Tuesday (June 29th) the weather chaos in the Federal Republic already caused flooded cellars and streets. In Baden-Württemberg, among others, the fire brigade and police were in constant use.
Unfortunately, the all-clear cannot be given on Tuesday afternoon. The German Weather Service (DWD) is now again warning of severe thunderstorms that are approaching from the south. Some of the weather service’s warning cards are already colored in alarming red.
Weather in Germany: Heavy thunderstorms with hurricane gusts are approaching – extremes in the north
For example, official level three storm warnings apply to south-west Germany for severe thunderstorms with gusts of wind, heavy rain and hail. The hurricane-like gusts can occur at speeds between 90 km / h (25m / s, 48kn, Bft 10) and 110 km / h (31m / s, 60kn, Bft 11), according to the warning, which currently applies until 5.30 p.m. (As of Tuesday, June 29th, 3 p.m.). Baden-Württemberg is particularly affected, including the greater Stuttgart area and parts of Rhineland-Palatinate.
But the severe weather warnings also apply in other regions. In the very north of the Federal Republic of Germany there is now even a warning of “extremely severe storms” of warning level 4. Even if the circle in which the warning applies only appears small on the map – great caution is advised in this area. The heavy rain could be “extreme” in Schleswig-Holstein around Kiel in the Baltic Sea region, it is said. Level 3 warnings also apply to parts of Lower Saxony near Aurich and Wittmund.
