Large temperature differences ignite various storms

During the night, the rain and snowfall will shift south again. This means that we can expect both snow and freezing wet conditions on the roads on Thursday morning. Until Thursday morning, the boundary between snowfall and rain lies roughly on the line from Cologne to Dresden.

Basically, there is a large temperature difference between northern and southern Germany. That’s why there are different storms in the south than in the north or the middle.

Storm gusts down to the lowlands!
