Windstorm hasn´t brought only severe winds, but on cold front, severe storms with relatively large hails have appeared in Germany and the Netherlands.

A few videos from this event and additional Twitter material from the storm we are bringing in Infographics below.

In some cities, hails had diameter around 3 cm and heavy rain or hailstorm flooded the streets.

In other regions, the first lighting activity of the year appeared or severe winds made a lot of damages.

Now, a big coldwave in Europe has begun and the next round of possible storms should arrive around an Easter 2021, when expected very warm period will be ending /https://mkweather.com/before-an-easter-will-come-warm-spell-first-25c-of-the-year-in-contiental-europe//.
