"strong storms" Heavy hailstorms approaching

The new week in Austria not only brings the next heat wave of up to 36 degrees but also brings violent storms in the luggage again.

A complex low pressure core over the British Isles is felt on Assumption Day in Austria. The western part of the country, in particular, is under the influence of a high-altitude trough, and as the air mass becomes unstable, thunderstorms can occur, some of which are severe. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the influence of high pressure will lead to a temporary lull in the weather, while very hot air will hit us at the same time. On Thursday there will be an increasingly western high-level current again, so the weekend will be unstable.
