At the beginning of February several storm lows swirled over Europe and Germany. One of them was fast-running UWE. It was a Shapiro-Keyser cyclone which brought
gusts up to 148 kph (Feldberg / Black Forest) on 10 February 2019. Particularly affected were the south of Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria.
Trigger of the gusts was the strong pressure gradient, as well as the passage of the cold front.
