Yellow, withered meadows can currently be seen everywhere in NRW – but it will start raining again as early as Wednesday, August 17th. However, this is not necessarily good for the earth.

Cologne – After weeks of drought in NRW, rain, heavy rain and thunderstorms will follow from the middle of the third week of August, according to the German Weather Service. During the night of Wednesday, August 17th, local showers will occur west of the Rhine – persistent rain is expected on Thursday.
24RHEIN explains what consequences heavy rain can have on the soil.

At least the Rhine level could rise again due to the precipitation. In Cologne he was already approaching the record low. This also had consequences for inland vessels. (nb)
