Warning for Bonn and the region : Threat of storms with heavy rain and hail on Monday

Sunday was the warmest day of the year so far in Bonn. But the good weather is over on Monday: there are threats of severe thunderstorms, probably with heavy rain and hail.

Sunday was the warmest day of the year so far in Bonn. The 30 degree mark was broken for the first time at around 12.30pm. The highest temperature of 32.8 degrees Celsius was measured in the late afternoon. This was a new highest temperature for 2 June, exceeding the previous record holder of 31.9 degrees from 2000.

In the record year of 2018, Bonn residents had to wait until 6 June for the first tropical day of the year to be recorded. Up to September 2018 there were a further 30 hot tropical days.

However, the sunny weather is over again on Monday. Heavy cloud cover will form during the day, together with showery rain and sometimes with severe thunderstorms that could result in heavy rain and hail, according to the German Weather Service (DWD) and others. Thunderstorms have already caused significant problems in many parts of NRW this morning.

The maximum temperatures in the Rhineland will be between 20 and 26 degrees. Light to moderate winds will come from the southwest to west, changing from west to northwest during the day. Strong to stormy gusts are possible in areas of showers and thunderstorms.

It will first be heavily overcast on Monday night with showery rain. Thunderstorms are possible in some areas, which will later move eastwards. Afterwards there will be light cloud. The lowest temperatures during the night will be between 14 and 11 degrees.
