Thunderstorms will develop across parts of western and north-central Germany Saturday afternoon, bringing some relief from the heat; however, there will also be the risk for slower travel and localized downpours causing flash flooding.

A stray shower or thunderstorm rumbling around Berlin cannot be ruled out, but most of the day will be dry.

Not every location will turn stormy on Saturday, but any thunderstorm can quickly develop and ruin outdoor plans.

"If you are outdoors and hear thunder, go indoors immediately," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys.

If you hear thunder, you are at risk for a lightning strike at your location.
