Although it is expected that precipitation will be less than normal, from time to time is only possible powerful thunderstorms. Likely they will have devastating consequences due to wind and floods.

Poland, Czech Republic and Belarus: a strong storm.

The combination of heat waves, with individual intrusions of moist air from the Mediterranean will lead to the emergence of strong storms from Eastern Poland and the Czech Republic to Belarus and southern Lithuania. The strongest thunderstorms will happen in the afternoon and early evening.

The highest threat is in Prague (Czech Republic), Wroclaw and Warsaw (Poland) and Minsk (Belarus).

Thunderstorms are accompanied by destructive winds, hail, and floods that will disrupt traffic. The strongest thunderstorms can also cause strong tornadoes and large destructive hail.

Severe thunderstorms are also possible in Munich and Dresden (Germany), Vienna (Austria) and Vilnius (Lithuania).

The Balkan Peninsula and the South of Italy: the threat of floods due to thunderstorms.

Slow storm and dangerous floods threaten Rome and Naples (Italy), Tirana (Albania), Sofia (Bulgaria) and Bucharest (Romania).

In addition, in these places the rains lasting up to 3-5 days. This will cause increased risk of flooding and landslides, especially at the foot of the Apennines and the Dinaric Alps.
