According to the DWD meteorologist, the highest warning level (level 4) should be declared in many places. “This threatens significant damage as the thunderstorm complex extends,” Offenbach weather researcher said Thursday.

According to the definition, a formal level 4 warning can threaten people’s lives. “Avoid spending time outdoors. Be extra careful and regularly inform yourself of the evolving weather,” advised DWD. In addition, one should prepare for “extraordinary measures” and in any case follow the possible instructions from the authorities.

It is likely that so-called supercells will form as a result – rotating systems with powerful updates that move completely independently and are therefore difficult to predict. There are also “ideal conditions” for hurricanes.
