Hello everybody. We now just started our ticker to the severe storm that is currently lurching NW of Germany. Although the system is currently not so great, with peaks of aroun 70kmh, it will increase rapidly and then move into Germany from the NW. The storm system is expected to bring gusts of significantly over the 12bft boundary in lowland far in the inland, and repeated gusts of 11bft as well. In Berlin 98kmh are forecast, which is 20kmh more than still 1 day ago. M.I.L.K. is expecting peaks of around 108kmh, though, which would be near hurricane-forced. More information will be added.
