Low pressure area ZACHARIAS and AXEL brought severe precipitation due to thunderstorms and accumulated precipitation in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria and Brandenburg .
Locally more than 200 mm of precipitation fell within 24 hours.
After the year 2018 turned out to be too dry as well as the first months of 2019, the rain came in mid-May in abundance. April already started
summer-like with temperatures at just under 30 ° C but May started cool with the ''Eisheiligen'' and retained this also. After high NEYVI shifted to the
northeast, it cleared the way for low ZACHARIAS. In addition to ZACHARIAS low AXEL developed in the south of Germany developed as a shallow bottom low.
