Storm fronts: the outlook
Yesterday there was a lessening of the wind for a short time, followed by the arrival of storm front "Franz".
Up to now "Franz" has only affected operations in the coastal regions, particularly in the seaports.
Now two more storm fronts, "Gebhard" and "Heinz", are approaching from the west, preceding the calmer weather that is forecast for the weekend.
Thus ongoing restrictions (temporary work stoppages due to gusts of high-speed winds) will have to be expected in terminal operations, in the seaports and in the affected parts of the hinterland. These may also affect our train transports. However, at present large-scale restrictions like those that occurred at the beginning of this week are not expected.
We will keep you informed of the situation.
