A heavy rain event is expected on the edge of the Alps.
From Saturday, the German Weather Service (DWD) warns of very, very much precipitation, which can also lead to floods in southern Bavaria.
Munich - First half of Franconia is flooded, then a storm in the Eifel turns into one of the worst natural disasters of the post-war period.
Each time the German Weather Service (DWD) had warned clearly of possible storms with drastic consequences.
Now there is advance information for southeast Bavaria.
A longer area on the edge of the Alps is already hatched in red on the DWD warning map.
The following districts are affected:
Storm and flood risk in Bavaria: DWD warns of precipitation up to 150 l / sqm
The DWD expects a lot of rain in a very short time, especially in the eastern area, i.e. for Rosenheim to Berchtesgaden. It is also well known that rain clouds like to accumulate on the Alps and then rain down in a torrent. The DWD calls this congestion. The heavy rain is supposed to start around noon on Saturday. The end of the danger is indicated by the DWD as Sunday, 8 p.m. According to the DWD, “within 24 to 30 hours, quantities between 50 and 70 liters per square meter (l / m²) fall, from the Chiemgau Alps to the Berchtesgaden Alps by 100 l / m². In congestion areas and with shower-like reinforcements, especially east of the Inn, up to 150 l / sqm are likely in places. "
150 liters per square meter (about one bathtub for every square meter) would then be the quality of precipitation that triggered the catastrophe in the Eifel.
But as I said.
This is currently a preliminary information.
How bad the heavy rain is will only become apparent on Saturday.
