The precipitation that fell last night hit the Alpine region and thus the upper reaches of the Isar and Loisach regions significantly. Due to the rapidly increasing flow rates to the Sylvenstein reservoir, the storage output must be increased significantly in the next few hours from the current 50 m³ / s to an expected 200 m³ / s. This means that reporting level 1 will be exceeded at the Munich / Isar gauge in the early afternoon and reporting level 2 may be exceeded for a short time tomorrow morning. Even at the Freising / Isar gauge, reporting level 1 may be exceeded in the early morning
