The peak of heat is followed by cooling

2023-06-22 10:09:00

The first heat wave of this summer is reaching its peak. Almost 30 degrees were measured in Freistadt in the morning. And it’s getting even hotter: According to the Geosphere Austria forecast, 36 degrees are even possible during the day. The risk of severe weather has not been averted: cumulus clouds that form in the afternoon can result in individual downpours or thunderstorms.

Upper Austria was largely spared the day before. Carinthia and Styria were particularly affected, where a violent hailstorm caused severe damage. “We observe what is happening every two hours, it is difficult to make a clear forecast here due to the unstable air layers,” said Geosphere meteorologist Christian Resch in the OÖN interview.

The “cold front” also brings wind, clouds and individual showers to Upper Austria. “Away from the mountains, it stays dry longer,” according to the Geosphere forecast.
