Weather in Bavaria: There will be thunderstorms in these regions on Monday
“A new thunderstorm low is approaching Germany,” says meteorologist Dominik Jung von weather.net in his latest prediction. Again it moves from France to Germany. Some of the thunderstorms have potential for severe weather due to “heavy rain, gusts of wind and hail”. The temperature values are “sweltering” at 20 to 28 degrees. According to the weather map, Bayern will only really hit it in the afternoon.
The storm potential is particularly high in Lower and Middle Franconia, in the foothills of the Alps and in Swabia. Wetter.de even warns of hail damage. The thunderstorms subside in the evening, but then move on to Upper Franconia, Upper Bavaria and Lower Bavaria. Munich is not entirely spared either. According to Jung, “heavy downpours” must also be expected there.
DWD does not rule out “hail up to four centimeters”.
The forecast for Monday by the German Weather Service (DWD) states: “On Monday from the afternoon from Württemberg and out of the Alps, thunderstorms in some areas. Local storms caused by heavy rain of up to 40 l/sqm, hurricane-force gusts of up to 110 km/h and hail of up to four centimeters.”
Wetter.de meteorologist Paul Heger does not even rule out tornadoes in his forecast: “Individual violent thunderstorms or supercells can form, which also increases the risk of tornadoes.” The DWD also warned of tornadoes for Franconia on Friday. According to the expert, heavy rainfall of up to 60 liters in one hour could have fallen within the thunderstorm cells within a very short time. On Tuesday it will be mostly sunny again in Bavaria.
