Rain Clouds From The East, Berlin, May 17, 2014

Last week a low pressure system with lots of rain led to a terrible flood in South-East Europa affecting mostly Serbia and Bosnia. Even there weren’t any extreme weather patterns in Middle-Europe on Saturday, May 17, the effects of the huge weather system over Europe could be seen in Berlin. Unlike most of the time when winds come from West or the Northwest this day dark clouds could be seen approaching from East /North-East.  Berlin is situated in between the continental climate zone and the more humid atlantic climate. Clouds travel most of the time from the west towards the east. This time the clouds and the rain approached from the East, coming from Poland. The clouds on the pictures and the time-lapse film led to an interesting effect when they got illuminated from beneath after 6.00 pm. It was still dry most of the time on Saturday in Berlin. On Sunday it was raining for most of the day.

An interesting thing happened after the rain ceased on Sunday afternoon. Very deep hanging clouds followed the rain and in the late afternoon the upper part of the famous “Fernsehturm” disappeared in the mist.
