Created: 8/31/2022, 8:41 p.m

The autumn months bring a wild weather mix for Germany. Especially the extreme temperature differences in Europe bring strong storms into the country.

In the past few weeks, the drought summer of 2022 has weighed heavily on Baden-Württemberg and all of Germany, as echo24.de has already reported. Due to the lack of rain, numerous meadows, forests and fields have dried up. And now autumn is bringing a wild mix of weather to the country. Heavy storms also threaten.

The first forecasts show a change in weather with more rain as early as September. But there are other voices among the weather experts. The American NOAA model sees warm days in Germany for the first few weeks of September. It could be a very mild Indian summer. However, the meteorologists at wetter.com see autumn storms as early as October.

Weather forecast for autumn 2022: temperatures in September too high

A look at autumn 2021 shows that the summer temperatures continued to determine the weather for a long time in September. According to wetter.com , even October was still much too warm. According to the forecasts, this should not be the case in 2022.

Here the experts see a change in the weather conditions and temperatures. The amounts of precipitation therefore reach a normal value for the season from mid-September and in October. The extreme temperature differences across Europe are also noticeable. The risk of strong autumn storms then increases enormously.

Autumn storms 2022: This is the forecast

In warm October 2021, only the storm “Hendrick II” caused massive damage in the autumn. For autumn 2022, Germany is threatened with significantly more days with strong winds. The portal wetter.com sees a significantly higher probability of massive autumn storms.

The reason for this is the expected general weather conditions. In northern Europe, large areas of land cool down in autumn as the position of the sun continues to decrease, and the warm air lasts much longer over southern Europe. Strong lows like “Melissa” or even storm lows can form. How strong the expected autumn storms of 2022 will be cannot be said at this point in time.

Brandenburg in particular was hit hard by Xavier on October 5, 2017. Five people died. Storm Herwart followed on October 29, 2017. Two more people died.

But as early as September 2017, hurricane Sebastian caused autumn chaos with fatal consequences.

And in 2021, storm depression Hendrik II raged and caused traffic chaos and damage. Several people were injured and one man died.
