Risk maps

Risk maps show the distribution of weather-related risk conditions through colours for the selected date. 

The colours are additionally described by expressions ranging from moderate to severe. A differentiation between wind and precipitation is also given by the colours.

  • Red: Gusts of wind with a speed of over 115km/h.
