Another cool and rainy weekend for Central Europe! A large high pressure system over the British Isles and a low pressure system over the continent are currently responsible for the transportation of cool and moist air masses from northern and north-eastern direction towards Central Europe. This weather pattern caused large amounts of precipitation over the weekend with local maximum accumulated precipitation values of up to 70 mm within 24 hours. In eastern Switzerland and western Austria, a typical blocking situation could be observed. The so-called Lake Effect enhanced precipitation amounts for example around Lake Constance due to cold winds blowing over the warm water surface. The animation shows the radar images from August 29 (04 UTC) until August 30 (02 UTC), the temperature and geopotential height @ 700 hPa (~3000 m).
