After a summer Wednesday, the DWD warns of gusts of wind throughout Bavaria from Thursday.

Sometimes there is a red alert.

Munich - Today, Wednesday (October 20), autumn seems to be taking a short break in the Free State.

Temperatures above 20 degrees delight in many places in Bavaria.

A foehn situation on the Bavarian edge of the Alps has even provided temperatures of up to 24 degrees, as the German Weather Service (DWD) announced.

But the weather change is already imminent.

Bayern have to expect rain * and especially squalls * on Thursday.

The DWD has even issued a warning level 3 in some regions.

Weather in Bavaria: DWD warns of "hurricane-like gusts" in some circles

It is going to be stormy in Bavaria.

“Monster storm Hendrik is coming to Germany,” explains meteorologist Jan Schenk from

The Weather Channel

.

"We will see a lot of falling trees".

There is even a risk of storm surges on the North Sea coast.

This is due to the low "Ignatz", which quickly moves from the English Channel to the Baltic Sea.

Bavaria is also badly affected by the “first strong autumn storm”.

The DWD warns of gusts of wind for the entire Free State.

In southeast Bavaria, an “official warning of gusts of wind” will apply from Thursday at 9 a.m.

Otherwise, the DWD map is colored orange or red, which means warning levels 2 and 3.

In most of Bavaria, the DWD warns from Thursday, 8 a.m., with alert level 2. This means an “official warning of gusts of wind”.

Gust speeds between 65 and 80 km / h are predicted.

"In exposed locations, heavy gusts of up to 90 km / h must be expected," said the DWD.

Danger of storms in Bavaria: Gusts of up to 115 km / h are approaching

For some isolated regions, the DWD even issues an "official storm warning of gale-force gusts".

The warnings apply from 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday.

Particularly affected are regions on the Bavarian-Czech border and in Lower and Upper Franconia.

Hurricane-like gusts at speeds of up to 115 km / h can occur in the following circles:

  • Freyung-Grafenau

  • rain

  • Cham

  • Schwandorf

  • Tirschenreuth

  • Bayreuth

  • Wunsiedel in the Fichtel Mountains

  • Rhön-Grabfeld

  • Bad Kissingen

DWD and meteorologist warn of "falling branches"

In the course of the weather situation, the DWD warns of possible dangers.

“For example, trees can be uprooted and roofs damaged.

Pay particular attention to falling branches, roof tiles or objects, ”says the weather service.

Meteorologist Jan Schenk also warns: “Please be careful”.

The gusts of wind in the lower elevations would cause

enormous traffic

obstructions on the

Weather Channel

.

After the storm, Schenk announced “polar cold air”.

On Friday (October 22nd) it should be really cold again.

"In the mountains there is probably even snow *", says Schenk.
