After the first major autumn storm, the weather situation in Germany has calmed down again in many regions.
According to meteorologists, the first autumn storm swept through the country as predicted by the DWD - with a special feature: What is unusual about this storm is that the strongest gusts occurred over central Germany.
Hurricane-like gusts had occurred in the lowlands, said Markus Übel from the DWD of the German Press Agency.
At the weekend, the situation will calm down, as the weather service announced on Friday.
The high "Quedlinburga" even ensures sunshine - especially on Sundays.
The temperatures then move between 11 and 15 degrees.
At night it cools down properly, at night on Sunday and Monday the temperature even drops slightly into the frost range.
The coming week will continue quietly - even if Hoch “Quedlinburga” is saying goodbye to Germany.
Sturm claimed one death
The first autumn storm of the year claimed a human life. At Templin (Uckermark), the train driver of a regional train was killed by a falling branch, as the police in Frankfurt / Oder announced. The 50-year-old died in hospital on Friday morning from his injuries. He wanted to clear fallen branches from the tracks during the storm on Thursday and was hit himself. The storm toppled trees and messed up rail traffic.
The fire brigade in Berlin was called to a total of 372 weather-related missions on Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. The night of Friday then passed quietly, according to the police and fire brigade. The train started “stable” on Friday, as a spokesman said. "The trains are running." However, he could not rule out isolated train cancellations or delays. Before starting their journey, travelers should therefore find out whether their connection is operating as planned.
Around 1000 electricity customers in the districts of Spree-Neisse and Oberspree-Lausitz initially have no electricity.
The elimination of the disturbance will probably take the whole day, said a spokesman for the energy supplier envia Mitteldeutsche Energie AG in Chemnitz.
"We're not over the mountain yet." The storm had fallen branches destroyed power lines and power poles were damaged.
In the area of the energy supplier in Brandenburg, Saxony-Anhalt and Saxony, according to the information, a total of 3000 customers are without electricity.
More gusts of wind for Friday
The gusts of wind from low "Hendrik II", which determined the weather after the storm "Ignatz" raging on Wednesday, gradually subsided in the night of Friday. After the autumn storm had ravaged large parts of Germany on Thursday, the situation relaxed increasingly.
Nevertheless, the gusts of wind moving towards Scandinavia could still be felt in the coastal areas.
For Friday, the German Weather Service (DWD) forecast gusts or gusts of wind again in the north and center of Germany, as well as individual thunderstorms in the course of the day.
Especially in Berlin and Brandenburg, the wind should freshen up again on Friday.
According to the DWD, gusts can reach wind speeds of up to around 70 kilometers per hour, and even 85 kilometers per hour in free areas.
That corresponds to wind forces eight and nine.
Towards evening the wind subsides again.Keywords: storm, autumn storm, situation, hoch ``quedlinburga, dwd, forecast, squalls, train driver, branch, weather situation, injuries, places, accidents, country, meteorologists
