Hurricane low “Zeynep”: “Extreme storm” hits Germany

There are two phases: First the cold front reaches the west. There can already be gusts of wind, severe gusts of wind. Hurricane-like gusts and hurricane gusts are to be expected in northern and central Germany. In the ridges and peaks of the low mountain ranges, the weather experts expect heavy gusts of wind to hurricanes, on exposed peaks – such as on the Brocken – gusts of more than 140 km/h are not excluded. With the withdrawal of the cold front in the south-west and south, the wind quickly dies down again.

In the north, on the other hand, things continue: The second phase begins on Saturday night with individual short thunderstorms with heavy gusts of wind or hurricane-force gusts. In the North Sea area, especially in the area of the East Frisian Islands, the Elbe estuary and on the Dithmarschen coast, isolated gusts of between 130 and 150 km/h can be expected for several hours. According to the DWD: “EXTREME WEATHER”.

In the night to Saturday, the snow line drops to 800 to 600 meters. There can be 5 centimeters of fresh snow in the Alps by Saturday morning, and up to 10 centimeters in the Allgäu. A severe storm surge threatens Hamburg. The Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) warns of a severe storm surge on the North Frisian coast: On Saturday evening, night floods on the North Frisian coast will be 2.5 to 3 meters higher than the average high tide. The storm is expected to subside again in the early hours of Saturday.
