Cool, wet weather will prevail across Germany into the middle of the week as a slow-moving storm system crosses the country.
The storm system will cause rounds of rain on a daily basis through at least Wednesday.
The accompanying downpours will endanger motorists by reducing visibility and heightening the risk of vehicles hydroplaning at highway speeds.
Any substantial rain could renew flooding issues where the ground has been left over-saturated from downpours over the past week.
The greatest threat for flooding on Tuesday will be across northern Germany, including Berlin and Hamburg.
However, the threat for thunder and lightning will come to an end as cooler air spreads over the country on Tuesday.

Tuesday will feature the lowest temperatures of the week for many locations with highs of 17-20 C (62-68 F) common throughout the country.
The combination of thick clouds, periods of rain and chilly air will make it feel more like early October than late July.
The heaviest downpours will shift southward on Wednesday, bringing the highest threat for flooding to Bavaria. Nuremberg and Munich will be at risk.
While rainfall will become more isolated on Thursday and Friday, residents will still need to keep rain gear handy and be prepared for showers to put a damper on any outdoor plans.
