In Slovenia, almost two thirds of the country are affected by flooding as a result of severe storms (read more here). Further flooding is also feared in Austria and Croatia. The north-east of Poland was also hit by violent thunderstorms on Saturday, according to the fire brigade, streets in the city of Olsztyn were 70 to 80 centimeters under water.
The storm situation will remain acute in Germany's neighborhood on Sunday and regional storms are also to be expected in this country - especially from the afternoon and in the south and north-east. In some cases, the German Weather Service (DWD) warns of continuous or heavy rain and stormy winds in the affected regions.
The maps below give an overview of the weather conditions:
The interactive map below shows where it is currently lightning, thundering and raining. In addition, you can use the timeline at the bottom of the graphic to call up the forecast for a later point in time. At the top right, the displayed level can also be switched to rain or snow, for example. You can move and zoom the section.
The service is provided by Windy.com. The makers use the model from the "European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts" for their representations and forecasts.
The map above shows the DWD warnings for storms and thunderstorms for today. It is a binary weather map, i.e. places for which there is a thunderstorm warning are colored red. No coloring means no warning. Clicking on the map takes you to the wetter.de portal, which, like the stern, belongs to RTL Germany.
