In the late afternoon, very strong storms formed in the border area between Hungary and Austria. However, the storms will not bypass the territory of Slovakia either – they will hit soon. Today, in the late afternoon, very strong storms of a supercellular nature formed on the Austro-Hungarian border. Around 7 p.m. we were able to observe a phenomenon called the “cold ring” in the satellite images, which is a sign of extremely strong storms. Such strong storms also brought dangerous side effects, such as intense hail and heavy rainfall. Ice hails from the town of Szombathely report the size of walnuts, according to the Hungarian Metkép. Intense hail also spread in Kőszegpatyon, where hailstones reached smaller dimensions, about 1 to 2 cm. Flash floods are already being reported from neighboring Austria, where a lot of water has flooded houses and entire streets. It has been stormy in this area for over two hours, which is likely to cause further flash floods. The storms will also arrive in Slovakia. Storms can spread to the southern and southwestern districts during the night hours. At the same time, heavier rainfall awaits us. It could fall around 30 to 40 mm, in the case of storms it can rain even more. The southern and southwestern districts seem to be facing a stormy night with heavy rain, which is, however, much needed. We will continue to monitor storms.
