June 17 (Bloomberg) -- Europe faces severe weather this week, starting with scattered thunderstorms across northern Germany and possibly Denmark today before damaging winds and hail move east and south, AccuWeather Inc. forecast.
Storms will be widespread tomorrow over Poland, Belarus and Ukraine, with Warsaw probably the largest population center at risk of getting severe storms, AccuWeather wrote in an online report today. By June 19, the storm will move to western Europe, with the potential for heavy showers and thunderstorms in France, Belgium, and western Germany, the forecaster said.
A low pressure system across western and central Europe will develop a warm and humid mass of air over the region, “the perfect fuel” for severe weather, according to AccuWeather.
“Heavy downpours and large hail will be the primary threat both days, however damaging wind gusts will also likely be present,” AccuWeather wrote. “When any thunderstorm approaches it’s best to take cover and get out of harm’s way.”
Paris, Dijon and Lyon in France are at risk of strong storms on June 19, according to the forecaster.
