Despite a slight decrease in water levels at certain locations along the Lower Danube, the situation remains grave in eastern Bavaria. The water levels in Passau and Regensburg were still at maximum level 4 in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

As per the German Meteorological Service (DWD), showers and severe thunderstorms are expected in Bavaria on both Wednesday and Thursday. Heavy rainfall is anticipated primarily along the eastern Alpine edge. The Donau-Ries district council cautions that, despite declining water levels in rivers, water may continue to accumulate on open land. In Baden-Württemberg, the DWD predicts scattered showers or thunderstorms on Thursday, with predominantly dry weather on Wednesday. However, the likelihood of showers increases in northwestern Germany. We provide visual representations of the weather conditions in the given graphics.
