Heavy thunderstorms at the start of the weekend: Bayern card split – DWD warns

First report from May 13, 6 a.m.: Munich – The first summer week in Bavaria 2022 is in the books. Plenty of sunshine was the motto in many parts of the Free State. And the weekend will continue to be warm and sunny. Undisturbed summer feeling already in May? Not quite. Friday pretends to be a spoilsport. But things don’t get uncomfortable everywhere in Bavaria.

Weather in Bavaria: Thunderstorms and storms south of the Danube

Already on Thursday evening, May 12, the first thunderstorms moved across the Free State. However, these were largely limited to Swabia and the region around Ingolstadt. Here, the German Weather Service (DWD) warned of strong thunderstorms with gusts of wind around 75 km/h and rainfall of around 20 liters per square meter. It also hailed occasionally. The north was spared from the storms.

On Friday, the division into north and south as far as the weather is concerned will remain. While the Franconians and Upper Palatinate can enjoy an almost cloudless sky with lots of sunshine, it looks uncomfortable in the south. Showers can occur again and again in a band from Augsburg to Passau and in the direction of the Alps. “From noon, thunderstorms are more frequent, especially in the Alps and in the southern foothills,” warns the DWD. Overall it will remain warm with 22 to 23 degrees in the north. South of the Danube, the values ​​on the thermometer in the rainy foothills of the Alps climb to just under 20 degrees. Things are no different in the state capital of Munich.
