After there has already been heavy rain in the past few days, caution is advised until the end of the week.
As of Thursday evening, June 23, 2022, there is a risk of storms in Ermstal, Reutlingen, Tübingen and Alb. The German Weather Service (DWD) has issued a warning.
Meteorologists warn of the possibility of localized lightning strikes, which are life-threatening. Trees can be uprooted intermittently and roofs can be damaged. Anyone outside should pay special attention to fallen branches, roof tiles, or objects.
There is also a risk of torrential rain with volumes of up to 40 liters per square meter in one hour, hail with a grain size of up to four centimeters and gusts of strong winds of up to 100 km/h (Bft 10). Sometimes it is not possible to rule out amounts of precipitation as high as 50 L/m² in an hour or two.
As DWD says: “This is preliminary information. It indicates the potential for a severe weather event in order to enable preventive measures to be taken at an early stage. It does not constitute a formal warning. Official warnings are issued immediately when necessary.”
