2018.07.28 – Thunderstorm Forecast: Hail, Storm gusts in Central Europe, especially Germany & Switzerland

High temperatures combined with relatively high humidity (thanks to increased evaporation) will provide a favorable breeding ground for thunderstorms in much of central Europe today. Showers and thunderstorms are starting to move over the BeNeLux and into Germany currently (08.40 CEST), and will continue to move eastwards across Germany as the day progresses. They are expected to further intensify, with the potential for some storms to bring severe weather conditions. The possibility of storms clustering together to form long-lived “mesoscale convective systems” is also given. The main risks stemming from today’s thunderstorms are Large Hail with diameters potentially exceeding 2cm, as well as storm gusts which may exceed 120km/h in some thunderstorms, especially in northern Germany, and exceed 90km/h in many cases. Heavy rainfall is also not to be ruled out, with rain rates of up to 30l/sq. m in an hour certainly a realistic possibility. The potential for widespread flash-flooding is limited, however, due to the speed at which the thunderstorms are expected to move and the nature of the the individual storm cells.
In Switzerland and southwestern Germany, conditions look favorable for the development of supercell thunderstorms, bringing a further elevated potential for severe weather.

2018.07.21 – Feeling the Heat in Scandinavia

Temperatures have well exceeded 30°C in much of Scandinavia for the past several days, including as far north as the Arctic circle. Below is a map of the maximum temperatures recorded on the 18th of July, though past days have all brought similarly intense heat to Scandinavian countries:

The reason for these unusually warm temperatures is a high-pressure ridge which is currently situated over northeastern Europe, including mainly the Scandinavian countries of Sweden and Finland, the north of Norway and the northwest of Russia, and bringing temperatures as high as 33.5°C in Bardufoss (69° N in Norway, registered 18th of July).

And for now, the hot weather is expected to persist. The heat, and especially the dryness (which is a problem in much of Europe currently) are posing some serious challenges, with numerous wildfires having broken out in Sweden, and at least in the upcoming days, little relief looks to be on its way.

 

2018.06.10 – Early Warning regarding THUNDERSTORMS for Berlin and Brandenburg

Issued 2018.06.10 at 12:00 CEST

www.milk-weather.org
 
There is a significantly increased potential for severe thunderstorms this afternoon.
According to the latest forecast model runs, thunderstorms will be moving through Berlin and Brandenburg starting in the mid-afternoon and continuing into the early evening, before thunderstorm activity decreases through the night.
These thunderstorms will have the potential to become severe.
The main concern today, due to the relatively large quantities of water in the air and the comparatively slow motion of the thunderstorms, will be excessive rainfall which may easily reach up to 25 liters per square meter in a time span of about an hour. Even extremely high rainfall rates exceeding 40 liters per square meter in short amounts of time are not to be ruled out. Further, and especially if the thunderstorms organize into a line, storm gusts of 55 to 70km/h are to be expected, with possible peaks reaching higher values. There is also an increased potential for hail, and if it does occur, it may have diameters of up to 3cm.
Due to the above potential severe weather events which may accompany the thunderstorms, as well as the always present risk posed by lightning, it is best to remain indoors during a thunderstorm.
Flash flooding can occur, causing serious delays in transportation and potential damage to property. Especially underpasses should be avoided, as quickly rising water levels can easily become life threatening. Small rivers may spring their banks.
Stay informed about the current and upcoming weather situation. Remain indoors during thunderstorms; if not absolutely necessary, do not drive during a storm.
Do not put yourself into any unnecessary danger.
This is solely a preliminary assessment of an upcoming potential severe weather situation; it is meant for guidance only and no guarantees are given.

Precipitation is not to be expected, and the wind, coming from the northwest, will be light throughout the whole day.

Also on TUESDAY it will be mostly fair, though there can be some fields of clouds moving through from time to time. The temperatures will continue to stay fairly warm, at 15 to 26°C, and it will be counted as a “summer day” in the statistics. The wind will be predominantly light and will turn from northwest to northeast over the course of the day.

WEDNESDAY will continue to bring sunny weather with few clouds. However, it will be noticeably cooler, with morning temperatures of just 11°C and a high of 21°C. The wind will be light to moderate and will be coming from the east.

2018.06.01 – Early Warning regarding THUNDERSTORMS for Berlin & Brandenburg

Issued 2018.06.01 at 08:20 CEST

www.milk-weather.org
 
Thanks to increasing heat and humidity, as well as an increased lifting factor ahead of a front approaching from the west, the atmosphere is layered in a very unstable way right from the morning on today. This will give rise to thunderstorms over the course of the day, many of which will have the potential for becoming severe. Showers and thunderstorms have started to spring up early this morning already, evidencing the labile layering of the atmosphere and potential for thunderstorms.
As mentioned above, due to the high potential energy, thunderstorms generally have the potential to become severe today.
Due to the generally very slow motion of the thunderstorms, the risk of flooding is especially pronounced today; amounts of up to 60 liters of rain per square meter in short time spans can lead to serious delays in transportation as well as flash flooding, especially in low-lying areas and near smaller rivers.
Further, the potential for hail with diameters of up to 3cm is given. If hail falls, it may fall with such an intensity that it forms a closed cover. The hail may also smash car windows and cause damage to roofs & vegetation, etc. If large hail starts falling while you are on the road, stop driving. Windows of parking cars can be protected using blankets.
Storm gusts of up to 80km/h can also not be ruled out, especially at the leading edge and in the precipitation of the thunderstorms.
Stay informed about the current and upcoming weather situation. Remain indoors during thunderstorms; if not absolutely necessary, do not drive during a storm.
Do not put yourself into any unnecessary danger.
This is solely a preliminary assessment of an upcoming potential severe weather situation; it is meant for guidance only and no guarantees are given.

2018.05.30 – Early warning regarding THUNDERSTORMS in Berlin & Brandenburg

Issued 2018.05.30 at 10:30 CEST

After having had several hours of sunshine providing plenty of energy (and temperatures of up to 33°C), convective clouds will start forming in the afternoon, which will quickly grow into rain showers and thunderstorms. These are expected to stay isolated (i.e. individual clouds) and therefore it is impossible to say exactly when and where a thunderstorms will form and strike.
Due to the high available potential energy, thunderstorms have the potential to become severe.
The main risks to be expected from today’s thunderstorms are excessive precipitation of up to 60 liters per square meter within short time, as well as large hail of up to 4cm in diameter.
Excessive precipitation can lead to significant delays in traffic and may lead to flash flooding. Large hail can result in property damage, especially to cars and roofs. Prepare accordingly.
To a lesser extent, the potential for storm gusts of up to 100km/h is given as well.
Stay informed about the current and upcoming weather situation. Remain indoors during thunderstorms; if not absolutely necessary, do not drive during a storm.
Do not put yourself into any unnecessary danger.

HEUTE hält sich den ganzen Tag über strahlender Sonnenschein. Schon in der Früh ist es mit etwa 20°C sehr lau, im Laufe des Tages wird es dank der Sonneneinstrahlung allerdings mit bis zu 32°C sehr heiß. Es besteht deshalb eine amtliche Warnung vor Hitze. Außerdem liegt der UV-Index heute bei Stufe 7, d.h. dass Sonnenschutz bei längeren Aufenthalten im Freien sehr zu empfehlen ist. Wegen der anhaltenden Trockenheit steigt zudem die Gefahr vor Waldbränden in der Region deutlich an; es besteht mit Stufe 5/5 derzeit eine sehr hohe Gefahr. Deshalb sollte unbedingt jeglicher Funkenflug vermieden werden. Der Wind wird heute aus Osten kommen und leicht bis mäßig sein.

Auch MORGEN Vormittag hält das sonnige Wetter noch an, doch werden im Tagesverlauf immer mehr Quellwolken am Himmel zu sehen sein, bis es am Nachmittag dann sogar zu lokalen Schauern und Gewittern kommen kann. Die Temperaturen werden in der Früh bei 19°C liegen und tagsüber erneut heiße 32°C erreichen. Der Wind wird auf Südost drehen und überwiegend leicht sein.

Am DONNERSTAG bleibt es wechselnd bewölkt, allerdings mit zum Nachmittag dramatisch zunehmender Gewitterneigung; wann, wo und wie genau sich Gewitter bilden werden, ist unmöglich vorherzusagen, und die Vorhersagen werden sich am Vortag deutlich verbessern. Allerdings besteht das Potential für Unwetter. Die Temperaturen werden mit 18 bis 32°C erneut sommerlich ausfallen, und der Wind wird weiterhin leicht aus dem Südosten wehen.

 

WEITERE AUSSICHTEN:

Freitag: Schauer und Gewitter, 20 bis 31°C

Samstag: Heiter, Schauer und Gewitter, 20 bis 28°C

Sonntag: Heiter, Schauer und Gewitter, 19 bis 28°C

+++++++++++++++++++++ENGLISH VERSION+++++++++++++++++

TODAY, bright sunshine will dominate. At 20°C, it is very warm already in the morning, but thanks to the power of the sun, up to 32°C will be reached during the day. There is an official heat warning in place. Further, the UV-Index will reach level 7 today, meaning that for any extended exposure to the sun, sun protection is very highly recommended. Due to the consistent dryness, the risk of forest fires in the region also significantly increased; currently at level 5 of 5, a very high risk exists and any sources of fire and sparks should be avoided. The wind today will be light and coming from the east.

TOMORROW morning the sunny weather will persist, however as the day progresses, more and more convective clouds will start forming, and in the afternoon, there may be local showers or thunderstorms. The temperatures will start off at 19°C in the morning and will again reach up to 32°C during the day. The wind will be predominantly light and will turn to the southeast.

On THURSDAY it will be partly cloudy, though towards the afternoon, the potential for thunderstorms will drastically increase. When, where and how thunderstorms will form is impossible to predict in detail, and the forecasts will become more accurate closer to the day. However, the potential for severe weather seems to be given. The temperatures will again be worthy of summer, at 18 to 32°C, and the wind will continue to be light, coming from the southeast.

 

TREND:

Friday: Showers and thunderstorms, 20 to 31°C
