The German Weather Service (DWD) has issued a weather warning for the north and east of the country, after the west and south took a battering over the weekend.


While the west of the country is set to suffer under more storms at first, the bad weather will build in the north and east as Monday goes on and in the late afternoon strong storms are to be expected.

The DWD warns that hail storms and heavy rain are likely and that hail is likely to pile up on the ground, posing a danger to drivers.

In the latest weather warning, published at just after midday on Monday, an area of Brandenburg north-east of Berlin was given a serious weather warning.

The mass of air carrying the storms is travelling ever further north, Martin Jonas from the DWD told the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

“But when and where the the next one hits is impossible for us to say exactly,” he said.

The south of the country was dealing with the consequences of flash flooding on Monday morning that left at least three people dead.

But the southern states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria are set to have more pleasant weather that will ease clear-up efforts. The DWD has lifted all weather warnings for the south except in the very southwestern corner of the country and the French-Swiss border.
