The German Weather Service warns of heavy rain showers, hail and strong thunderstorms for Tuesday and Wednesday. Southwest Germany was initially affected on Tuesday, and the thunderstorm would move north during the day.
As the German weather service announced on Tuesday morning, a low over Germany will bring inconsistent and rainy weather into the country in the coming days. The southwest is particularly affected. On Tuesday afternoon there can be stormy thunderstorms and heavy rain – the DWD calculated locally up to 40 liters per square meter in a short time.

In the evening and on Wednesday night, these thunderstorms shift further north, then Thuringia and Saxony could be particularly affected. Heavy rain, heavy hail and heavy squalls are possible locally. In north-eastern Germany, on the other hand, it is clear and dry until the evening. The maximum temperatures on Tuesday in the southwest and west are 18 to 24 degrees, otherwise 22 to 30 degrees, in the east up to 32 degrees.
Even in the night of Wednesday there can be thunderstorms and heavy rain in some areas. In the far north and north-east it is dry. The lowest values are in the north and east at 21 to 17 degrees, in the south and west at 16 to 10 degrees.
